Riddle/Lateral Thinking: How many socks to get ?

2. How many socks to get ?


Mr. X stays at Hyderabad, India. On a fine evening, he thought of testing his son's (Master S) lateral thinking capabilities. He called his son and told, "The drawer beneath the shoe rack contains 5 pair of black socks and 9 pair of white socks, and you have to get a pair of socks that match without looking into the drawer."

How many socks (minimum) must 'Master S' take from the drawer to get a pair that match?    

Note: Basic assumption holds good.
