Th- Th- That's All, Folks
Enjoy (but be careful!) solving today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game Tuesday Test Time challenge. Good luck!
When counting in ordinal numbers (first, second, third, etc.)
from 1 to 100, how many times does a suffix OTHER than "th" appear?
Here is the ANSWER.
27 TIMES. The suffixes ST, ND, and RD appear for 1st/2nd/3rd, 21st/22nd/23rd, 31st/32nd/33rd, and 6 more times through 91st/92nd/93rd. NOTE that these non-TH suffixes are NOT used for 11th/12th/13th.
Thanks for playing! Tomorrow, it's Wordplay Wednesday.
