This question already has an answer here:
For the long jump event at my school athletics carnival, people nominate and then get arrange in a certain order. I am looking for a natural way of phrasing a question to get someone to tell me where he fits in that order/sequence. One a native speaker would causually use. For example, if you're person A, and you want to elicit the following response:
- B: I am the nth jumper, just X more people and it'd be my turn.
I remember asking "Do you know where you are in the jumper order?" which sounds stilted and awkward (and I don't think I am using the word 'order' correctly). How can this question be properly framed? Also, I have looked through questions relating to ordinal numbers on this site, but just about all of them are related to birth order, and doesn't quite answer my query.
