Drag and Drop: Count items but no wrong answers

I'm still thinking this out but is it possible to have a drag and drop interaction that counts the "type" of items dropped onto an destination and where there isn't an incorrect answer.

Also any suggestions how I could count items by type but still have the objects themselves look similar. I was thinking markers might be a nice object to drag

Nothing yet, Still not sure its possible. If you imagine you have a total of 30 objects and the user can drag any of them onto 1 destination area in any order. If you as the designer know each 1 of the 30 objects belongs to 1 of 5 families, could you find out which family made up the majority of the objects in the destination
