    Asking About A Number

    Hi Everyone
    If I want to ask about the Place of Somebody By means of his number, how Should I answer that?

    For Example:
    Iran Is The Second Country In The World that Exports Gas. What would be the question form of this sentence if you want to get the answre "Second" Not "Yes Or No"

    Thanks

    "Where does Iran fall in the order of countries that export gas?" There can be other variations of this. You can change the verb "fall" to "stand" or some other that expresses what you wish to say.

    Thank You linsuman

    You guys have another suggestions?

    George Walker Bush Is The 43rd President Of The United States.
    Where Does G.W.Bush stand in the order of presidency of Unitad States?

    Is That Correct?
    Do You Have Better And Simpler Sentences?

    Petros, I find the last comment on the thread unnecessary to discussion and inciteful.

    Re: Asking About A Number

    Regarding any person in a linear set the best approach could be to set the scene before the question:
    How many chairmen has this company had?
    24.
    Where does xxxxx come in that list?

    Won't happen again? You could also 'write' out your comments in our usual style, that is without capitals for every word. Capitals are for the start of sentences and proper names.

    Re: Asking About A Number

    Oops! I am so sorry. I did reread the rules. I did not remember #6. This IS an English forum and religion does not have a place here. But I was quite amused at Petros' below the line comments. I like good-natured teasing. I hope I have not offended anyone and will reign in my impulsive nature in the future.
