Hey me and my friend get different answers for this R/S question. I am using the clutch method, I said the thing on the dash is no1 priority, then the ethyl group is no2, ...

enter image description here

then methyl no3 then hydrogen no4. But lowest priority group is not on the dash so switch H with CH3. That gives you a clockwise direction when you draw the arrow. But you reverse it So its s. But my friend gets r through a diff method. Could someone tell me what the correct answer is?
