The --help and --version options should be shown at the end of the options help text, not at the start, and in the other order, i.e.:

-V, --version Print version and exit
-h, --help Print help and exit

Also, the wording could be improved, as per current coreutils/grep:

-V, --version output version information and exit
-h, --help display help and exit

Note that the help strings should not start with an upper-case letter.
