I am wondering how to turn the following into a question

"Narendra Modi is the 18th Prime Minister of India"

How to ask this as question, so that answer will be 18th

I have tried searching these links but couldn't match my needs.

How to ask "nth time" of something

Framing a question whose answer is an ordinal number

How should I phrase a question that must be answered with an ordinal number (e.g., the third prime)?

Some body could help me.. Sorry If I'm vague and dont lambast at me since this is my first post here.

    I trawled through the responses to the duplicate question, and also the responses to the duplicate of the duplicate question, and didn't find a single suggestion there that would more or less guarantee an answer in your desired format. However, try this: "Thinking of how many premierships India has had so far, please tell me which number is Prime Minister Modi's?" – Erik Kowal May 26 '14 at 9:15

    In the line of succession, what number is Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India? Perhaps this might work. – GMB May 26 '14 at 12:07
