Pair of Gloves

Cathy has six pairs of black gloves and six pairs of brown gloves in her drawer. In complete darkness, how many gloves must she take from the drawer in order to be sure to get a pair that match? Think carefully!!

13. She could possibly take out 6 black left hand gloves and then 6 brown left hand gloves, the next one would have to be either the right hand or left hand match.

    I was thinking 7 (along the same lines of logic) because I concluded that even a woman could distinguish a left from a right handed glove in the dark ;o)

    Catch question. She may mistakenly take the drawer itself or grab her left hand with her right hand or vice versa. Besides, I bet she’s putting the gloves she takes that mismatch back in the drawer. After all, she’s obviously not bright enough to tell a left handed glove from a right handed. Or to turn on the light when looking for a colored glove.
