Eze Software Q & A Analyst Training Program Interview Question (student candidate)

I interviewed in Boston, MA and was asked:
"Scenario: If you were running late for a job interview and you had no lights on in your apartment. Let's say you went into your dresser drawer and had to pull out one pair of socks. All you had was black or brown socks. And there were 5 socks total, what is the least amount of pulls you could do?"

basically you have to keep in mind the probability of pulling out each sock. the shortest answer would be 2 pulls.

You have to pull out three socks to be sure that you had at least two of one color.

it would have to be three socks because if you pulled just two, you could get one black and one brown.
