Riddles

What about dedicating a thread to riddles?
I guess, it would be fun!

Here is the first one:
A word I know, Six letters it contains, Subtract just one, And twelve is what remains. What is the word?

*its possible*

But then there is no effective way to control spam. The limit was introduced to eliminate 1-2 word posts. This causes a little inconvenience, but we will have to deal with it.

p.s:
"Dozens" seems to be the correct answer. Neha, please confirm.
