Bill was the third to come and I was the fourth.
А the fourth в данном случае - это последний? Ведь last but… предполагает отсчет от последнего, а first but… не подойдет под задание.
Верно. Тогда так: Bill was the third to come and I was the second.
А что принципиально изменилось, если неизвестно, сколько человек отделяют этих участников от последнего? Кстати, поэтому мое первое задание They live two houses away from us некорректно, т.к. трансформируется только в next but one.
P.S. И второе мое задание тоже некорректно. Я делал по аналогии с рядом на фото, но у ряда-то два края/конца, а у последовательности только один.
Да, конструкция мудреная. Вроде бы наречие, а употребление очень ограниченное. Спасибо.
