3 4 5 6 7

to have a sum of 10 on two papers

1+9 , 2+8 , 3+7 , 4+6 only

7 is my answer worst case the first draws are (0,5,1,2,3,4,)

any additional one will give 10

EDITED BECAUSE OF TWO THINGS 1) NEVER RUSH IF U SEE A QUESTION THAT U THINKS IT IS EASY FOR U TO SOLVE ......... FATAL MISTAKE :cry:

2) WE WONT HAVE Ciceron on G day to advice you to concentrate

(though i wish i can :lol: :wink: )

considering the Worst Case Scenario:
1)
0,1,2,3,4,5,6 -

Till you reach 6, you cannot satisfy the condition given in the Question (2 numbers adding upto 10)

2)9,8,7,6,5,0, 4 -

Same till you reach 4.

So the ans is 7 - (E).
