What number should Gaurav say to start?

0 votes

Hari and Gaurav are going to play a game. Hari explains, "You and I will take turns saying numbers. The first person will say a number between 1 and 10. Then the other person will say a number that is at least 1 higher than that number, and at most 10 higher. We will keep going back and forth in this way until one of us says the number 50. That person wins. I'll start."

"Not so fast!" says Gaurav. "I want to win, so I will start."
