1. None. Six and six are twelve

2. Once, you would then be subtracting 6 from 30.

3. All numbers in group A are greater than the sum of all numbers they are divisible by [except for themselves]. I.e, 1+2+5<10. In group B, all numbers are less than the sum of all numbers they are divisible by [except for themselves]. I.e, 1+2+3+4+6>12. The number 6 is omitted because all numbers it is divisible by add up to 6. 1+2+3=6
