Yes, you have 11 possible combinations - but the case presented to you is that "one of the sixes is removed". As the posters talking about red and green dice point out, there are in fact 2 cases of 6,6 - one where we remove the red and the green die is 6, and one where we remove the green and the red die is 6. so the odds at 2 in 12, not 1 in 11. It's not the odds that 6,6 is rolled, it's the odds that the case presented to you matches the criteria - at least one 6.
