Abstract: In response to one of ten problems posed by G. Warner, we assign (to the extent that it is possible) a geometric or cohomological interpretation-- in the sense of Langlands--to the multiplicty in $ {L^2}(\Gamma \backslash G)$ of an irreducible unitary representation $ \pi $ of a semisimple Lie group $ G$, where $ \Gamma $ is a discrete subgroup of $ G$, in the case when $ \pi $ has a highest weight.
