How to ask what is your number in the siblings or to your parents


You could ask two questions:

How many siblings do you have? and

Where are you in the birth order?

  • I'd add that the follow-up question depends on the answer to the first question: if they say "none" then of course you wouldn't ask about birth order, and if they say "one" then you could ask "are you (the) youngest or oldest?" – 1006a Oct 26 '18 at 15:34
