    Re: th or nd or st after roman numerals

    In things like the numbers used for monarchs or other people sharing names we generally write the numeral without st/th- Pope John-Paul II, Henry VIII.

    I use the preposition and make it plural:
    Congratulations on passing the exam. (British English speaker)
