All colours.) There are 20 gloves in a drawer: 5 pairs of black gloves, 3 pairs of brown, 2 pairs of grey. You select the gloves in the dark and

check them only after you have made the selection. What is the least number of gloves you need to select to guarantee getting at least one pair of EACH color (black, brown and grey)?


We will need three gloves of any of those colors whether it is black,grey or brown bcoz one of them will of course match.
