Why are there twelve spheres - 1

Next in Abhidharma-Samuccaya is the issue why there is exactly twelve spheres.

ཅིའི་ཕྱིར། ci'i phyir is why.སྐྱེ་མཆེད། skye mched is sphere; with the plural particle རྣམས། rnams this becomes spheres.

བཅུ་གཉིས། bcu gnyis is twelve.

ཁོ་ན། kho na is only, ཞེ་ན། zhe na is what does it mean. Note that this the same pattern as with the earlier questions listed in this text.
