### Correct

High five!

US Version

No matter how high you count, the finger that corresponds to the ones column never changes.

All numbers ending in three or eight end on the pinky.

UK Version

That's right. He'll land on his little finger.

No matter how high the number he counts to, each number in the ones column will always fall on the same finger.

When the ones column contains a 3 or 8, he always ends on his little finger.
