It was around 4 in the morning,
and I'm all dressed up,
ready for school,
when the electricity was cut off.
Too bad, I haven't put on my socks yet.

I have 2343 pairs of gray socks,
3212 pairs of pink socks and
6525 pairs of blue socks.
Everything is mixed in my drawer.(I'm a bit of irresponsible, sorry about that.)
As there was not light,
I was not able to identify the color of the socks.
How many of the socks did I need to take to match one pair ?

4 socks


There are only three colors, if you take 3 different ones first, the next one will match one pair.
