If con can solve my riddle he wins the debate, if he cannot or gets it wrong I will win.

A man walks into a club and the only way to get in is if you say the correct number based on what the manager says.

Manager: 12
Man: 6
( Man walks into the club

A second man walks up to the manager an wants to get in the club so the manager gives a second number.

Manager: 6
Man: 3
(Man walks into the club)

A hooded man walks up to the manager and says what is my number.

Manager: 10
Hooded man: 5

The manager turns the man away because he said the wrong number. What was the correct number??????

Con

In the third scenario, its not stated that it is the manager who is giving the number:

"A hooded man walks up to the manager and says what is my number"

In this case the hooded man is the one asking for the manager to guess the number, not the other way around as painted in the first two scenarios.

The manager says 10, the hooded figure says 5.

"The manager turns the man away because he said the wrong number. What was the correct number??????"

^ In this sentence, 'he' is not specified, and can be referring to the manager OR the hooded figure. And my guess is the hooded figure.

Therefore the correct number is 5

I think......

I apologize for not being specific enough but the correct answer is 3. The answer to all the numbers is how many letters are in each one. Twelve has six letters six has 3 and ten also has 3. Good try Con but I win.

Con has made his guess and the answer is not revealed yet, so I will guess. 10! The man asks, "What is MY number?". In other words, he is asking what number he is supposed to say! The manager tells him to say 10, but he says 5, and so is shown the way out.
