How should I phrase a question that must be answered with an ordinal number (e.g., the third prime)?
How do you convert the sentence “George Washington was the first president.” to a question?
How manyth son to your father?
What will be the correct question to get an answer like "he is my second son". Here the actual answer is the word 'second', which denotes the order.
Can the phrase 'ordinal status' be used? Like "What is the ordinal status of Mr. Singh among the prime ministers of India"? Is this correct?
