Note that the combination is not "pair of 2s, 5s AND 8s", but "pair of 2s, 5s OR 8s" (you're not allowed to have more than one pair in your hand in any case in Mhing).
You get the points if the pair in your hand is 22, 55 or 88. The both cards in the pair must be of the same suit, of course, but the suit of the pair does not matter.
I see the "or" is very important. I read it as you needed six cards. Much clearer now that it just relates to your one pair!
