    count

    A little boy said that he can count up to 10.
    What would be an appropriate question to ask in order to get this answer?

    1) Can you count?- If I want to know in general.
    2) Up to what (number) can you count?


    Thanks

    Do you know how to count?


    2)
    Can you count to ten?
    What can you count up to?
    What number can you count (up) to?
    What's the highest number you can count (up) to?

    Another of the many variations is "How high can you count?"
