Q : May I know what number of person you went in that exhibition ?

A : I was the 6th person.


I wonder if the Question is correctly asked ?

I am having difficulty understanding the question. Does it mean the same thing as "Where were you in line?"

I don't know how to re-phrase the sentence. Yes it means ' where were you in line ' ? But I want to be exact about the number. Hmm, there is no such concept in English I guess. Or are there any other ways to put it ?

How about ' which is your turn to go in ' ?

I wasn't sure myself, to tell you the truth, until, that is, I read RonBee's post. Thanks RonBee :D
