    I always write it like this as when I am usually using numbers I am thinking at a fairly fast pace and just want to get the number down quickly
    I do it this way too.

    Looks bad on the computer. I had problems with writing when I was little and my teacher always taught me to write it like that.

    I do 4, I think because it's a bit faster for me? A friend of mine has been trained by her work to do it the open top way because they said when stop taking it's easy to write too quick/get tired and make 4 look like 9.

    I usually do the hybrid 4 because half way through option A, I decide to go for option B...
