Patient records are filed in strict chronological order according to patient number from lowest to highest. An example would be: 123451, 123452, 123453, and then 123454 In the Terminal Digit Filing, medical record number 01-02-89, 89 is now considered the primary section, 02 is still the secondary section, and 01 is the tertiary section. (Terminal Digit), Even though the Terminal Digit Filing is filed from right to left, it must be read from left to right for locating the Health Records: In this question, 12-23-75, 12-34-29, 12-35-71, 13-42-14, 14-32-79 Numbers 12, 13, and 14 is serves as Terminal Digits:

The answer is Terminal Digits because the straight numeric filling starts from lowest to highest on the right. But Terminal Digits starts from the left.
