    The password is actually number of characters in the word.

    12/Twelve – 6 character

    6/Six – 3 character

    So when watchman said 8/Eight – the man should have replied with 5.

    Password can be some random calculation also.
    (number*2) then sum of digits = answer
    12*2=24 then sum of digits 2+4 = 6
    6*2=12 then sum of digits 1+2 = 3
    8*2=16 then sum of digits 1+6 = 7
