    Re: word

    hai

    my question is
    how to make it in a question format
    your reply is
    is India Gandhi the fourth prime minster of india

    But what i mean is i dont want the number (fourth) present in the question
    and consider you dont know whether she is fourth fifth sixth or seventh
    Apart from using these words i request you to form the statement in a question format
    please do it

    Hmmmm....I have a comment on your request.

    "please do it." is not a polite way of asking for something. Even though you have used the word "please" in this sentence, "do it." is a demand....it is not a request. Be careful about using such words....they can easily be mis-interpreted. "Please help me" would be much more polite.

    The question you are looking for is

    What position does Indira Gandhi hold as Prime Minister of India?
