This common question is ambiguous and needs more detail. Variations of the answer with explanations are below.

[Literal Sense]

1 is the answer because the actual number '6' (by itself) only occurs once.

[The Digit 6]

20 is the answer because, the digit 6 appears 20 times in this example:

6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 76, 86, 96

[The Number 6]

These would be the numbers in which '6' occurs:

6, 16, 26, 36, 46, 56, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 76, 86, 96

This is because one does not count the digits that represent values other than 6 (i.e. 60, 600, 6000, etc.). So, in this case, the digits with a strikethrough are uncounted. Simply, 6's are only counted in the ones place value.

The Answer:Once. However, if you meant the amount of 6s you pass meaning 6 as a digit, then, start by counting the 6s applicable in the ones place. That would be 10. Then, 6 occurs another time when it reaches every single 60s. Thus, (not counting the aready counted 66), there is 9 more. Therefore, there are 19 6s you shall pass.
