The answer is 11 Addition rules say when no other viewable information is present, then you count the actual number of colored squares present. Since there is no mention of any other type of math to be used of what comparison the diagram has to the other 2 people, it's automatically addition. So under the rules of math, the answer is 11. If it's not 11, then the problem cannot be solved as no number will be correct.
