comment How to ask a question to get an ordinal number answer
To clarify, Obama is the 43rd individual to be president, holds the 44th presidency, and the 56th presidential term.

-1 for factual inaccuracies. Though Obama has the 44th presidency, he is not the 44th individual to be president of the United States. Grover Cleveland was #22 and #24, which throws things off a bit. We have had 43 presidents, and 42 presidents preceded Obama.

comment When should “farther” and “further” be used?
What about metaphorical distance? As in "I was told to walk a mile in his shoes, but I walked [farther/further]". How about "'Did you get very far?' 'Yes, even [farther/further] than I expected to.']

comment What's the opposite word for “sin”?
I don't mean to get so deep here. The question sort of begs it, though.

The Greek word ἁμαρτία (hamartia) is one of the words used in the Bible for sin, and it does come from archery as paul mentioned. I don't believe the connection remains in English, however.
