    There is a general instruction page (not basses) that might be more helpful. But I think you are on the right track. In standard tuning it seems odd to indicate 2.5 steps to reach the 4th, because the destination is just straight up to the next string on the fret you started.. So while there is no B#, assume that from the B, that the E is the 4th interval and the F# is the 5th interval (the 2.5 and 3.5 steps by count up)

    It is correct and doesn't matter which notes.

    2.5 steps = 5 half-steps
    3.5 steps = 7 half-steps

    The interval is always the same.
