[Fixed] Alexa can count only from 1 to 10

Note : At the time of writing this post, Alexa had this issue which has been resolved. Alexa can now count flawlessley even in reverse. Alexa is the smart virtual assistance by Amazon. It is beating google now and Siri on non-screen devices. Alexa is hailed for its intelligence but it seems that the Alexa knows to count only from 1 to 10. By 1 to 10, I mean exactly from 1 to 10; neither more nor less. Even asking Alexa to count from 1 to 5 or 3 to 10 or 3 to 5 results in an apology from Alexa. Watch the above video to see for yourself.

JSON JSON(JavaScript Object Notation) is a human-readable data exchange format.  JSON is built on two structures: A collection of name/value pairs. In various languages, this is realized as an object, record, struct, dictionary, hash table, keyed list, or associative array. An ordered list of values. In most languages, this is realized as an array, vector, list, or sequence. JSON's basic data types are: Number : a signed decimal number that may contain a fractional part and may use exponential E notation, but cannot include non-numbers such as NaN. The format makes no distinction between integer and floating-point. JavaScript uses a double-precision floating-point format for all its numeric values, but other languages implementing JSON may encode numbers differently. String : a sequence of zero or more Unicode characters. Strings are delimited with double-quotation marks and support a backslash escaping syntax. Boolean : either of the values true or false Arra
