I have read the question and the answer several times, and I still have no idea what is being asked, or why the answer is correct. :p – JohnP May 12 '14 at 18:18
@JohnP Have you seen the movie? It should be obvious then. – his May 12 '14 at 18:25
@JohnP The question asks if it is true that Germans hold up three different fingers than US Americans when they want to indicate the number "3". Being German myself, I can confirm his's answer. ;) – atticae May 13 '14 at 15:25
