What is correct 31st or 31th?

Thirty-first becomes 31st, eleventh 11th, forty-second 42nd, fiftieth 50th, and so on. 31st, etc. are the correct options. When you use ordinal numbers ending in 1, you use first. The only exception is eleventh, because although it ends in 1 its “name” doesn't contain the word “one” like 21, 31, etc.
