    (the) most evident

    "Something was (the) most evident in group B"

    Is this "the" required there or not?

    Thanks

    Re: (the) most evident

    If there is more than one thing that's most evident, then yes; e.g., Two things are most evident: A and B. B is the most evident.

    And if there's just one thing that's most evident, then there's the most evident. Do I get it right?
