Let's say I have a 1hr long video uploaded to YouTube and in the start 3mins I am talking in it rest is a edited tv show clips.

Q1 - So if I apply for monetization with that video it's will be seen as reused content ????

Q2 - Let's say if I trim the video and just leave the first 3min or 4min and remove the rest. Will that video still be seen as reused content if I apply for monetization.

Edited-
just thought of this can I trim a video after I uploaded to YouTube??? If yes then when applied for monetization will the YouTube team be able to see the whole 1hr long video or just the 3min or 4min that I left after I trim it.

If you are using other peoples content, then that is reused content and is highly likely not to be approved for monetization.

You can not trim video after they are uploaded.

That may or may not get monetized. BUT, as you are using other peoples content, then you have to decide if the effort is worth it if monetization is your goal.
