    What number child are you in your family? I am fifth child.
    Where are you in your family’s order? I am fifth child.
    "Where are you in your family?" I am fifth child.

    Where are you in age among the children in your family? I am fifth child.



    Hello,

    The blue questions are all correct and have same meanings. But I just want to know that which one or ones are
    heard and common.
    If you were me which one or ones you would like to choose?

    Tahnk.

    This had been discussed in this forum more times than I care to count. You'll be more likely to get helpful answers if you first do a few Searches.

    Hello.
    If I may add,

    Please follow Barb_D's advice. (post #2) - 'the search box' is the white box that says "Google Custom Search" (at the top of this page) .

    Re: Family order

    Regardless of the correct way to form the question, you now know from your other thread, that you need to say "I am the ​fifth child".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
