It's not possible. Discipulos would be accusative plural, and here, the students are nominative, subject.
The students/pupils are in the city.
How many students are in the city?
There's no verb that takes "students" as a direct complement, in other words, asking for an accusative.
The question was "How many students are in the city?" I gave - Quot discipulas sunt in urbe? which it said was correct but with a spelling mistake and should have been "Quot discipulae sunt in urbe?" The point is though that "discipulae" wasn't an option to choose from the words listed.
Shockingly the "common" word order here is more similar to Japanese rather than Roman language descendants. 幾つ学生が町にいるか? Latin never ceases to amaze me*
- I know.. the word order is more loose in Japanese but this is the first association that popped up as "common" order.
