# Don't be tricked!

Level pending

To please their children, Mr and Mrs Tan bought socks of their children's favourite colours. They bought 10 $${\color{green}{green}}$$ socks for Benedict, 20 $${\color{blue}{blue}}$$ socks for Bob, 30 $${\color{red}{red}}$$ socks for Brenda, 40 $${\color{orange}{orange}}$$ socks for Brian and 50 $${\color{yellow}{yellow}}$$ socks for Billy.

Unfortunately, there was a blackout one night but Brenda wants to grab a pair of socks. Although she may not get her favourite $${\color{red}{red}}$$ socks, she at least wants a pair of socks of the same colour. What is the MINIMUM number of socks she needs to pull out to be ABSOLUTELY certain of this?
