Could you please explain how to do this question? Thank you very much.

Gustav is an untidy man who keeps all his socks loose in his drawer. He has 6 pairs of white socks, 4 pairs of green socks and 5 pairs of black socks. What is the most number of socks Gustav will have to take out of his drawer to ensure he has a pair of socks of the same colour to wear?
