    Default Which is the best?

    I'd like to know which form is the best among the following possibilities.

    (1) in the last one and a half year

    (2) in the last one and half year

    (3) in the last one year and a half

    (4) in the last one year and half

    (5) in the last year and a half

    (6) in the last year and half

    I guess (1) is good, but not sure. Thank you in advance.

    5 sounds best to my BrE ears. Also, I'd say 'years' in 1.
