Look at your photo & then look at the other photo. Forget about the finger. Look particularly at the top of the brake arms where the cable and the cable housing attach to the arms.

People are likely not answering your question in words because they don't want to be responsible for you or your friend's safety.

If you have ANY doubts—even the slightest micro-doubt—about whether you've attached the brake cable to the arms correctly, and/or the pads do not touch the rim consistently, GO TO A MECHANIC AT A BIKE SHOP. It should take them only a minute to fix this—assuming there're no other issues.

The bike shop will probably tell you that supermarket type bikes are not worth buying. In general, they are right.
