Pangilang presidente si President Quezon : The Final Answer

Saturday, March 19, 2011

In case people are still asking. Here's my question to that long question about translation:

What is the English translation of :Pangilang presidente si Manuel Quezon?


Answer: What is the ordinality of Manuel Quezon as President? or What is the ordinal number of Manuel Quezon as president.

(O HA?! KALA NYO HA. HINDI IMPOSIBLE YAN. KAILANGAN LANG MAGBASA NG MAS MARAMI)

You can shuffle the words, but the key here is the world ORDINAL, which I learned at some point in working with IT terminologies. So who says being a programmer makes you absolutely useless?

I think the better question is, "Bakit sa Bente Pesos Nilagay si Quezon Eh Hindi Naman Sya Tumira Sa MalacaƱang?"

IN WHAT CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER DOES MANUEL QUEZON FALL IN AS PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES

ayan English nun!!

Chronological Order refers to how a set is arranged with respect to time, and not the position of just one element of the set. To use it as a description of an element is grammatically unsound. Sorry, I'll stick by my answer.

in essence both sets are correct. The ordinal number of quezon as ph pressy is 2nd. Thats his sequence in the chronological order of presidents. And his cardinal number being number 2. So ask the question in the chronological (or spatial) number...and answer in the Ordinal sequence. There...

I think that you can also use the question "What ordinal number represents the position of Manuel L. Quezon in the succession of Philippine Presidents?"
