    Smile how to write a number

    Hello

    I'd like to check how to write a number.

    #1 He left the second window from the right a little open.

    Can I write "2nd" instead of "second" like #2?
    Is it grammatically OK?

    #2 He left the 2nd window from the right a little open.

    Thank you.

    Yes, you can do that, but the first is more usual (and preferable).
