P of a no from red chips : 6/12 and of blue is also 1/6
6/12 * 1/11 = 1/22 IMO B

Probability of red chip = 6/12=1/2
Probability of blue chip with the same number = 1/11
P=1/2*1/11=1/22

Total Chips = 12
Probability of picking a red chip and then a blue chip with the same number Without Replacement?
Probability of picking a red chip = 6 /12 (Any Red chip out of 6 Red Chips can be picked from the bag of 12 chips)
Probability of picking a blue chip with the same number Without Replacement = 1 /11 (Blue chip of the same number as that of Red chip can be 1 from the bag of 11 remaining chips)

Therefore,
Probability of picking a red chip and then a blue chip with the same number Without Replacement = (6 /12) * (1/11) = 1/22
Answer Option B is Correct
