Could you refine this question?
Howmanieth son are you to your father?
frame a suitable question to get the following answer.

I am the third son to my father.

I encounter a question very often, which gives me jitters. Bitten by curiosity, some ask me for the equivalent English translation of a Telugu question which reads thus:
The literal translation is this : What is your order/number of the sons of your father ?
I tried my best to get the exact translation, but in vain. Can you please help me by giving exact English equivalent.
Thank you in anticipation.

Maybe you want to ask "How many sons does your father have?" OR "How many children does your father have?".

Hello Esikela Udaya Kumar,

I'm not sure I understand the question correctly, but I would guess that we would say in English:

How many brothers do you have?


Which of your brothers is the oldest?

However, as I said, I'm not sure I have correctly understood the question.

Best wishes and good luck,
