Nations, Capitals and Number String (Posted on 2016-08-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5
"Indonesia" contains the string "one" in order – which describes a number.

What are the other countries and national capitals that contain at least one string (in order) of spelled out form of a number having more than one letter? (Such words also include known mathematical constants like pi, phi, psi etc. Ordinal numbers like first, second, binary, ternary are also admissible.)

*** Plurals are allowed, but abbreviations, acronyms, slangs, or archaic words are not allowed.

*** The countries corresponding to the above list should exclude non-sovereign states, associated states and entities with disputed sovereignty.

Hints/Tips re: the approval procedure ...not a spoiler | Comment 1 of 2

S  H  A  M  E  !

Ordinal numbers like first, second, binary, ternary are also admissible.

The above sentence passed  the reviewing board.

 My remark and TD were ignored.


I.   "binary" and  "ternary" are adjectives, not ordinal numbers !
ii.  What "admissible" countries have words like first, second, binary, ternary  embedded within their names?
iii.  Same question re: slang.

To demonstrate my disappointment in the approval process
 I react as follows:
a. Refrain from dealing with the "solution".
b. Rate the puzzle 1, since lower rating does not exist.
c. Appeal to all scholars and JR's: respect your TUs, take the voting procedure seriously.
