Strategy Statement: The interviewer isn’t interested in a specific number, but rather on how capable you feel at multi-tasking. Giving just a number as an answer isn't a good idea.

Sample Response:

The number of projects I handle depends on the size of the projects and their relationship to each other. It has been said that we can keep seven bits of information in our mind at one time. How we organize those seven bits makes an obvious difference (for example: one phone number, or seven digits... or, working on seven projects or one theme (that incorporates seven projects)).
