    Do you know the angles between them

    well 6 is the smallest one so thats what i think it is

    The thing here is that, i think we need at least 1 angle. Reason being that the 3 and 4 stick can be separated by angles between 0 and 180 degrees. which will need different lenght of stick to connect both of them

    I'd say 6 too because according to Pythagoras' theorem, the 3rd side would have been 5 if the angle at the top right was 90 degrees... but we don't know that angle... so approximately we can say 6 is the answer. besides the question is asking for what the answer will MOST LIKELY be. I'll go for 6

    we don't have to solve for this, we just have to find what the angle will most likely be, i suppose we're supposed to use intuition to answer this question :/

    From looking at the picture. The triangle looks almost like right angle triangle so i did say 6 is the best answer
