NO GOOGLING OR SEARCHING THE INTERNET FOR ANSWERS :)

RIDDLE: A man wanted to get into a members only club but because he couldn't become a member, the man hid and watched as the guard at the door of the club house said a number to each member as they approached, the member would respond with a number of their own, if the member responded with the correct number they were let in, if they responed incorrectly they were thrown out. One member come up to the guard, the guard said twelve and the member responded with six and was let in. Another member came to the door, the guard said six and the member responded with three and was let in. Believing he had heard enough, the reject went up to the guard, the guard said ten, and the reject said five, but was not let in, what should the reject have said?

He should have said three- for the number of letters in the word (ten) given by the guard.

He should have said "Please".
Busy now, will have to think about this more. Maybe the right answer was already given
