Thank you. English is supposed to be the one language I am fluent in so I don't know how to feel about you saying my Pashto is better than my English lol

Thank you very much.

You can't generalize. Some individuals make more effort to learn and speak better Pashto.

Wrora za ham pa Islamabad ke loy shaway yama... it depends on the individual but in Islamabad or other cities outside KPK or Balochistan where Pashto is the main language, is it harder to actually study it.

Not just Peshawar, all over Pakistan. Even in Quetta.

In Pakistan we use Urdu and English words and in Afghanistan they mix in Farsi words.

Your idea that Pashtuns in Pakistan do not know how to count in Pashto , is completely wrong.As Traveller said , that even though Urdu numbers are used quite often but people do know the Pashto equivalent as well.
Just because your cousins were unable to do so , does not in any way prove that everyone else is like that too.

Even though I don't use them that often , but I can count in Pashto .

In Peshawar , there do live people who are non-Pashtuns but have picked up the Pashto language.So if such a person doesn't know how to count in Pashto , don't be surprised.
Also if I'm not wrong , you are either from Khost or Paktia. It might be that in your dialect the numbers sound different from that of the Peshawar region.

dialect does not really make that much of a difference in numbers. Besides you guys ran away when asked the question.
