I hope this isn't J's English book from school.
No, I think we bought it from a supermarket, or maybe Kelly's mum got it for him; can't remember. Anyway, virtually every page contains an error. 'He likes a ______.' is pretty common.
The odd thing is the Chinese version says five as well! It is a bit clearer in Chinese though: "A person's hand has 5 fingers"I guess they didn't think anyone would notice that two of the fingers were held up! Marvellous.
This is the teaching textbook that O'Brien used with Winston Smith in 1984. "How many fingers am I holding up?"
