    2005

    Hi, Happy christmas season to you all!
    I'm wondering if I can read dates in the following ways:
    Example: 1905

    1nineteen hundred and five
    2nineteen and five
    3 nineteen o five

    2005
    two thousand and five
    Is "twenty o five" possible?
    Bye Rip

    In the UK, quite a lot say 2-oh-5, which is short, though mathematically inaccurate.
