    Re: least favorite...

    It means 'less than anything/anyone else'.

    USA is my most favorite country while Antarctica is my least favorite.

    Re: least favorite...

    Without more/most, less/least, it is neutral. No comparison at all.

    You use 'least/less' and 'most/more' to form comparative and superlative adjectives.

    Superlative - Picasso's painting the least attractive (ugliest) of all.
    Comparative - Da Vinci's painting is less attractive (uglier) than Michaelangelo's.
    Neutral (no comparison) - Peter's painting is attractive (just fine).
    Comparative - Michaelangelo's painting is more attractive (better) than Da Vinci's.
    Superlative - Paochai's painting is the most attractive (best) of them all.

    4 - pink
    5 - green

    Based on the above data, orange is my most favorite color and green is my least favorite color, what's my favorite color then?

    Re: least favorite...

    Analyze this:

    (negative 2)
    A is the least attractive of all.

    (negative 1)
    B is less attractive than C.

    (zero or middle)
    C is attractive.

    (positive 1)
    D is more attractive than C.

    (positive 2)
    E is the most attractive of all.

    Did you get it?
