This question already has an answer here:
There are many pupils in the classroom. Peter was the n th( n is a positive integer) student to arrive. Now I want to ask Peter about what n is. How can I ask him? It seems that it is very difficult to begin with a wh- question in situations like this.
As I have noticed previous similar questions about this.
Where did Peter fall in the sequence of arrival?
Is this idiomatic ?
