If there are 5 houses in the village and I passed 4 houses and now at 5th house I finally arrived to the destination. It took me how many houses to get there or after how many houses I finally found the right place I had to get to?
After 5 or after 4 houses?
Or another example to understand me:
If I am trying to find the right video or song and I watched already watched 4 videos and now I am on 5th video and that is the video I was looking for.
And someone asks me after how many videos did you find the video you were looking for? Should I say: AFTER 5 videos or AFTER 4 videos?
Or another example:
You have had 3 girlfriends in total. 2 before and now you have 3rd and she is the one you love the most. Would you say: I finally found the right one after 2 girls or 3 girls?
The question is should I count in the one which was considered the right one?
