Thanks in advance.

You shouldn’t ask this question in the middle of the night.

I’m not sure if I understand the question but if you are referring to numbered drill bits, a #10 bit has a diameter of .1935 inches, which is right between 3/16 and 13/64.

David’s answer is telling you what size bit to use for a given screw size.

These are two different pieces of information.
