    Re: please help me with these questions

    How many books have you read this week?
    How many cars have you owned/bought?

    The second is tricky to come up with an exact question- a straight 'how many' doesn't require his name. You could say something like 'including Mr Bush, how many presidents have there been?'

    Exclamation Re: please help me with these questions

    THANKS TDOL,
    But that is not exactly what I wanted. so I set another example to clarify my question.
    John has three cars .a BUICK , a BMW , and a CHEVROLETE .His friend Andy wants to find out the order by which he has bought the cars,specifically the BMW .
    I want the question for which the answer is "the BMW is the second car I bought"

    And the question I`m looking for is not the following questions.

    1)Which car is the second car that you bought?
    2)Is the BMW the second car you bought?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks in advance

    Is that right?
