At the outset, we rank the letters of the alphabet (irrespecitve of case) in the reverse order.

Thus, we have:

1 = z
2 = y
3 = x
4 = w
5 = v
6 = u
7 = t
8 = s
9 = r
10 = q
11 = p
12 = o
13 = n
14 = m
15 = l
16 = k
17 = j
18 = i
19 = h
20 = g
21 = f
22 = e
23 = d
24 = c
25 = b
26 = a

Thus, converting the numbers in the given question to their letter equivalents  with proper punctuation added, we observe that the decoded question is:

"Who is the Director of Perplexus?"

It is well known that levik is the director of perplexus, and so transforming the string "levik" to its number equivalent, we obtain 152251816, and so, 152251816 is the required answer to the given question.
