**Unlikely**: There is no mention of where the arms have to be. So a pregnant lady can have 4 arms with one baby ( of course not at the shoulders ). Since the next person one meets is unlikely to be a pregnant lady, it is the answer in my opinion.

There is, of course, another event wherein a person with more than 2 arms could also meet him which is even less likely.
