Which of the two is correct and in what context can either be used? I read a poster where they had written that a course is running for a 4th time. However I have not read such a sentence before so if you please explain it for me.

Either phrase is correct and can be used interchangeably in that particular case. The one exception I might consider is if something is running for a 4th time within a certain span of time. For example,

the course is running for the 4th time in 2 years

would be correct, but

the course is running for a 4th time in 2 years

would be incorrect

  • fourth looks better than 4th. – David Handelman Aug 28 '16 at 15:29
  • Please explain why you deem the second one incorrect. – Helmar Aug 28 '16 at 16:49
