I don't know about ASL, but in NSL you would need to be on the same
time-line for the two. As 'this page' is a specific event, the sign for
'next page' would be correct, and sign number 2 would be almost correct,
but in NSL the movement would be like that in no 3, but backwards, that
is, a small curve, regardless of wether the main hand actually goes over
the passive hand or not.
