The usual size is 1/4" & 3/8" Ratchet for your average job ( which is what you have ) he can purchase a 1/2" adapter for heavy duty work if need be.

Metric is the Euro system of measurement ie. 10mm 11mm, ect
US use stranded measurement ie. 1/4" 1/2" 1 3/4 " ect.

Also I like the 62 Pc Metrinch Combo Spanner Socket & Wrench Set ( each tool can do both )

Hope this helps
