What size pot do you choose to make food for your family?

hi,guys
I want to buy a set of stainless steel pots. I like Cristel strate, but I don't know what size pot I should buy to prepare food for a family of 5 people.
My list is:
4 casserole, size 16, 18, 20, 24cm
1 Saute Pan, size 26cm
1 Soup bucket with a size of 9.4L
2 Frying pans, size 24,26cm
I don't know if these are enough
Suppose I need to entertain friends? Maybe I need to prepare dinner for 10 people. Are these pots enough?
If I buy a larger pot for dinner for 10 people, such as 28, 32cm,
So how do I balance my need to make exquisite dinners for 1-2 people sometimes?
Is it too bloated to make exquisite food for 1-2 people in a large-sized pot?
I can’t buy all sizes of pots
So can you tell me, what size pot should I buy?
thank you very much!!
