Correct spelling

62nd

Correct spelling, explanation: this form is the correct one, because nd is the ending for ordinal number second. Therefore every number which ends with second will have this ending – just like 62nd. This means 62nd is the correct form and 62th is incorrect.

Definition of 62nd:
numeral, ordinal number between 61st and 63rd
Today is 62nd day of my diet and I am feeling great.
On John’s 62nd birthday he decided to retire.


Incorrect spelling
