2. one hundredth day
3. a hundredth day

(How can we read '100th day'?)

Do you mean his 100th birthday? (Meaning he's 100 years old?)

Let me know.

and you can't say #3
======================
Thank you. Not 100 years old, but 100 days passed

    I think rfvv is referring to the small celebration when an infant is 100 days old.

  • English -

    You could say, "This is his hundredth day on the job."

    You could say, "This is the one hundredth day since the mine caved in."

    But "a hundredth day" wouldn't be used.

  • English -

    Ah, I see.

    So rfvv, how could you rephrase those sentences to reflect the 100th day celebration?

  • English -

    I think he's using "100th day" as we would say "birthday." Yesterday was his birthday.
