Faulty question

Oscar  à compter jusqu'à dix en français. (Oscar manages to count up to ten in French.)HINT: Conjugate "arriver" (to manage) in Le Présent 

Should this be ("gerer" ----to manage)

No, gérer means e.g. to manage a company.

To manage to do something is arriver à + infinitive.

Bonjour Peter et Alan !

I'll complete Alan's answer as such: 

arriver à [faire quelque chose]  =  to manage [to do something]
réussir à [faire quelque chose]  =  to manage/succeed in [doing something]

gérer [quelque chose] = to manage/ deal with [something]

I hope that's helpful!

Bonne journée !
