16.

If we pick up 5 it can be only gree or all red or all white. But if we choose 6, then even if all 5 red balls are picked, we know that at least one ball will be gree or white.

If we pick up 8, we know that all 8 balls may be gree only

If we pick up 8 balls, which by our bad luck is all green, and then we keep picking up balls and by bad luck they can be all white balls till 15 balls. but 16th ball will 100% be of red color because all other balls have been picked up.

good questions. earlier when i saw this question, i thought it was pwrmutationr or probability. then i thought i will solve it on pen and paper, when i sat down, it was simpler!   Naadan_Parinda,GaryVeeand1 otherslike this
