Is first floor the floor above the ground floor or the ground floor itself?
I know the difference between the British and American usage. But how do you deal with this, especially in writing? I tend to write “…the first floor (the floor above the ground floor)” when I want to make sure there is no confusion.
**Edit:** Looking at the replies, I think there is a squid game potential here. You pair up r/Nepal members in pairs of two, hand everyone a picture of a house, and then ask each pair to point out the first floor without looking at each other’s answer. If the pair’s answer match, cool.
