Default Number of interview question

Hi all,
I received an interview from a program in NYC and I just found out they ask all their applicants “how many interviews do you
have?” I know many people advise to play it coy and not answer directly. This is my only interview and I was planning to answer in all honestly that and truthfully it’s a program where I wanna be not just because it’s my only choice. My thought process is that they wanna know how highly you’re gonna rank them since most applicants with a lot of ivs won’t rank NYC highly considering most programs are community programs with crazy workload. Could it be they wanna know how competitive of an applicant I am? And since I have only
one means not much. Should I lie and say I have more than one iv?
I would appreciate your input on this. Thanks
