Which number is considered unlucky in East Asia?

3
4
12
40
Words "four" and "Death" have very similar pro­nun­ci­a­tion in Chinese, Viet­name­se, Korean and Ja­pa­nese. In East Asia many build­ings do not have a 4th floor. Some high­-rise res­i­den­tial build­ings omit all floor numbers with "4", e.g., 4, 14, 24, 34 and all 40–49 floors.
