I suspect you really want the value of the Property that has a certain
Caption attribute value. It happens to be the 2nd one and you could select it
just on that basis alone by replacing the [...] below with [2], but this is
probably more what you want:

  <xsl:for-each select="/Entities/Entity">
    <option value="{Properties/Property[@Caption='Operational Number']/@Value}">
      <xsl:value-of select="Properties/Property[@Caption='Name'/@Value"/>
