The original 6 World Trade Center building had 8 stories?

Many websites say that the original 6 World Trade Center building had 8 stories, but according to this Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...d_Trade_Center), the building seems to only have 7 stories besides the underground mall.

The Sears Tower (I refuse to call it anything else) is described as having 110 floors but I think it really has 108.

I have been wondering about that but have been too embarrassed to ask. I grew up believing the Sears tower had 110 stories however most sources I find say 108.
The Willis Tower's website claims 110 stories.

The 2 extra floors are in the elevator box, so they usually aren't included in Sears Tower's floor count.
