Let \(S_1, \cdots, S_5\) denote the five partitions:

$$ \begin{eqnarray} S_1 &=& \left\{\{\bullet\}, \{\circ\}, \{\star\}\right\}\\ S_2 &=& \left\{\{\bullet\}, \{\circ, \star\}\right\}\\ S_3 &=& \left\{\{\circ\}, \{\bullet, \star\}\right\}\\ S_4 &=& \left\{\{\star\}, \{\bullet, \circ\}\right\}\\ S_5 &=& \left\{\{\bullet, \circ, \star\}\right\}\\ \end{eqnarray} $$ Then the twelve pairs are:

$$ \begin{eqnarray} (S_1, S_1) \\ (S_1, S_2) \\ (S_1, S_3) \\ (S_1, S_4) \\ (S_1, S_5) \\ (S_2, S_2) \\ (S_2, S_5) \\ (S_3, S_3) \\ (S_3, S_5) \\ (S_4, S_4) \\ (S_4, S_5) \\ (S_5, S_5) \\ \end{eqnarray} $$

To summarize: there are 5 identity arrows; 6 drawn arrows, and; 1 composed arrow [3 equivalent composed arrows] from \( S_1 \dots S_5 \). \( 5 + 6 + 1 = 12 \)

Just a minor additional explanation point that might help others. Coarser partition (as per John's lecture 10), means that more points are connected (or equivalent). Which is why in Dan's answer \(S_5\) always appears on the right, because it is the most coarse --that is, in that partition most points are equivalent. May be another way to think about 'coarsest' partition, is that it will contain the 'least' number of blocks.
