another puzzle

A man wanted to enter an exclusive club but did not know the password that was required. He waited by the door and listened.

A club member knocked on the door and the doorman said, “Twelve.” The member replied, “six” and was let in.

A second member came to the door and the doorman said, “Six.” The member replied, “Three” and was let in.

The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said,”Ten” and the man replied, “five.” But he was not let in.

What should have he said?

well many possible answers. if we add twelve and six ,its eighteen. if we add six and three, its nine. so now is answer should be a multiple of nine, so he could have said “eight”.
or most probably doorman knew he is wrong guy and asked a wrong digit!

The answer should be “three” according to number of alphabates. twelve has six alphabates, six has three alphabates, and ten has again three.ok.
