2 numbers for eg :- 11+1 =12

I dont get it can u explain more

Suppose we wrote $11$ numbers $1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11$ each on different piece of paper and then put all those papers in a box and we shuffle those pieces.

Now how many minimum number of pieces we need to take out from that box to ensure that the number written on any $2$ of the pieces that we are taking out from the box results in sum $12$ without looking at the numbers that we are picking out from the box..

here the name of the box is $S$. i.e. box=set.

The pairs that would result in sum of $12$ are $(1,11) ,(10,2), (3,9),(4,8),(5,7)$ only

So we have to calculate the worst case of getting $12$ as sum of any $2$ numbers that we ae picking out.

We pick $1$ then $2$ then $3$ then $4$ then $5$ then $6$ uptil here sum of none of the $2$ numbers that we picked results in $12$

Now whatever number we pick next from the remaining numbers in the set(box) we would definitely get $12$ as the sum.i.e.

if we pick $7$ then we can get $5+7 =12$

if we pick $8$ then we can get $4+8 =12$

if we pick $9$ then we can get $3+9 =12$

if we pick $10$ then we can get $2+10 =12$

if we pick $11$ then we can get $1+11=12$

$\therefore$ The minimum numbers that we need to pick are $7$ to ensure that we get a sum of $12$.

I didn’t understood ...sum is $12$ given in question not $11$

Opps sorry but how it comes to 7

we need to pick 1,2,3,4,5,6,(7 or 8 or 9 or 10 or 11) i.e. 7 numbers in worst case.
