Framing a question
Let me explain the scenario.
Say you have 'n' number of siblings (brothers/sisters) in your family,i.e your parents have n+1 children.A random person wants to know whether you are the 1st child or 2nd child or..so on,without knowing apriori the value (n+1).Is it possible to frame a question for this?This has puzzled me for long because it is possible in many Indian languages to frame one which would prompt a response like this: "I am the 3rd child of my parents"
Note:english.se warns me that "The question you're asking appears subjective and is likely to be closed."But asking it anyway :)
