Answer was acceptable da problem diger arkadashin belirttigi gibi "kacinci" kelimesinin Turkche'de bire bir olmamasi. Yalniz, conceptual olarak tercume edilebiliyor. Check my answer and let me know what you think.
Thank you allingus for your effort.

PS "maniest" sounds like a manifest but someone stole the "f".

I totally agree with "allingus"


Explanation:
Bu "how manieth" de nerden cikti???
Ingilizce'de boyle bir terim, kelime, (ya da her neyse) yok. Kacinci kelimesinin tam Ingilizce karsiligi yoktur. Allingus'un acikladigi gibi Bill Clinton Amerika'nin hangi baskanidir seklinde sorulmalidir.

Explanation:
Bakın sevgili dostum, yaklaşımınızı anlıyorum ancak, İngilizce bir terimi Türkçe DÜŞÜNDÜĞÜNÜZ zaman bir yere varmak zor olur. Daha önce önerdiğim çeviriyi, bir Amerikalı aynı Türkçesindeki gibi anlayacaktır, yani: Bill Clinton A.B.D.'nin KAÇINCI başkanıdır?

Fakat buradaki "kaçıncı" kelimesi için ille de bir şey söylemek istiyorsanız, sizin önerdiğiniz gibi değil, şu şekilde olabilir:

In numerical order, which president of the USA was Bill Clinton?

is vs. was


Explanation:
Bu arada sorunun yüklemine verilmesi gereken ZAMAN dikkatlerden kaçmasın:

Bill Clinton "IS" not the president of the USA "NOW".

He "WAS" the 42. (emin değilim ama, o civarda bir şey olması lazım) president of the USA.

Aynı soru ve cevabı, eğer, J.R George W. Bush için geçerli olsaydı "IS" zamanı kullanılırdı.

Of what number president was Bill Clinton of the United States?


Explanation:
"which" corresponds the word "hangi" in Turkish. The first thing you think of is not whether he was the 42nd president of the U.S. by the use of this word. It makes me think more of his attributes than, where he was in the presidential line.
So, above is my translation.

what number is president Bill Clinton?


Explanation:
Bu soruyu daha önce arkadaşlarla tartışmıştık. Geçenlerde Jay Leno Show'da eski başkan Carter vardı. Orada başkanlarla ilgili çok bilgili bir kıza Leno şöyle sordu, "What number is president Bill Clinton?"
Daha önce doğruya en yakın olduğunu tahmin ettiğimiz ama emin olamadığımız çeviri buydu. Kız da buna cevap olarak Clinton'ın kaçıncı başkan olduğunu söyledi. İngilizcede bu soru dolaylı olarak sorulabiliyor ama sonuçta en kısa böyle soruluyor.
