I want to know if what certain orders or positions in the orders are in English.
The following are my questions, assume that we have ten apples, I put my questions on these apples:
What is the name of the order when all apples are red? We say the apples are all red?
What is the name of the order when one apple (the first) is red, the next one is yellow, and then the third one is red and the forth one is yellow again and this continues to the last apple.
What is the name of the order when one is red, and the next two are yellow and the forth one is red and again the next two are yellow and ....
You see, I'm seeking for word/phrase to describe this orders.
My second concern is the position of the items in an order.
We say the first apple is red. We say the last apple is red. But, how do we say one apple to the end is red? I mean an apple before the last one?
