3. The OK sign
This hand gesture is very popular, and people use it to tell others that things are going well, or the message is well received. It is mainly used in places where communicating with words is difficult.
4. The V sign
This sign is a bit different from other hand gestures because its meaning is partially dependent on how the hand is positioned.
