the letter C

consider this:

Letters 'a', 'b', 'c' 'd' do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 99,
(Letter 'd' comes for the first time in Hundred)


Letters 'a', 'b' 'c' do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999,
(Letter 'a' comes for the first time in Thousand)


Letters 'b' 'c' do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999,999,999,
(Letter 'b' comes for the first time in Billion)

and the letter 'c' does not appear anywhere in the spellings of entire English counting....

C ..for...CASH !!


i wonder if this is the reason why residents of a Little Red Dot are purportedly pre-occupied with the 5 C's:

Condominiums

Cars

Credit Cards

Country Clubs,

and, of course, Cash!

Country club is a new addition. Don't remember reading about country club in the list.

it wasn't on the list when only 4 C's are sought after but added when they became more affluent.
