• Find which ordinal pattern digits match.
• If digit is found in teens pattern, use teens ordinal.

Sample Solution:

JavaScript Code:

``````//#Source https://bit.ly/2neWfJ2

// Define the 'toOrdinalSuffix' function.
const toOrdinalSuffix = num => {
const int = parseInt(num),
digits = [int % 10, int % 100],
ordinals = ['st', 'nd', 'rd', 'th'],
oPattern = [1, 2, 3, 4],
tPattern = [11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19];
return oPattern.includes(digits[0]) && !tPattern.includes(digits[1])
? int + ordinals[digits[0] - 1]
: int + ordinals[3];
};

// Test the 'toOrdinalSuffix' function with sample inputs.
console.log(toOrdinalSuffix('1')); // Output: 1st
console.log(toOrdinalSuffix('4')); // Output: 4th
console.log(toOrdinalSuffix('50')); // Output: 50th
console.log(toOrdinalSuffix('123')); // Output: 123rd
```
```

Output:

```1st
4th
50th
123rd
```
