Re: Asking Questions???
Bishrul, to add to what ems has just said, we get this question at least once a month.
English does not have a way to ask "how manieth" so that you get "third" or "42nd" as the answer.
Some have suggested elaborate and completely unnatural ways to ask the question that ensures the answer is an ordinal number (if the person you asked even understood you).
In fact, if you want to know that Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States, you can just say "What number president was Lincoln?" You may hear "16," but you'll probably hear "16th." Either way, you've still received the same essential information.
I join ems in welcoming you to the forum.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
