    Asking questions

    I would like to know the question that would elicit the unique answer, 'I am the second [eldest] child of my father'?

    You see, in the Dhivehi vernacular it is possible to ask a question that would elicit any specific answer in the nature of the above such as:

    I am the third child of my father, I am the fifth child of my mother etc.

    Please comment.

    I don't know of a specific question. People might ask if you were the eldest.
