This position works with an B chord, and you're still bending the 2nd string up a whole step.

Put your ring finger in the 5th fret on the 2nd string, and your middle finger in the 4th fret. Bend the 2nd string in the 5th fret, from the E note to sound like the F# note in the 7th fret.

Play the 2nd string with a pick, or your fingers, and then bend it. Release the bend, but don't play the string again until you go back to the D note in the 3rd fret. Then you play the root note of the scale, in the 4th fret on the 3rd string.

The note in the 5th fret on the 2nd string is an E note, which is the 4th note in the B scale. Here you're bending the 4th note up to the 5th note in the scale, and for this one that's an F#.
