    sir,
    twelve have six latter
    six have three latter

    &
    ten have three latter

    I think the ans is depend on latter’s
    and the basis of this logic the ans is “Three”
    Bcoz “Ten” have three latter

    the man should replied 8

    the man should have said 2..
    because when doorman said 12
    club member- 1+2= 3*2=6

    when doormen said 6
    clubmember-6*2=12—1+2=3

    when doorman said 10
    man – 1+0=1*2=2
    so man should have said 2.
