Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is incorrect, because we don’t use th to all ordinal numbers; just those which end with th in their full-word form. Therefore, sixty-second should be written as 62nd, not
62th, because second ends with nd, not th. 62nd is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: nd is the ending for every ordinal number with second at the end. Since 62nd is sixty-second in its word-form, then we use suffix -nd, not -th as in most numbers. th ending is used for numbers which end with th in their word-form. Therefore 62nd is the correct form and
62th is incorrect.
