    fear-biggest

    Is there 'biggest fear' to covey the meaning of unusually high fear? Or is it worst fear?

    Re: fear-biggest

    We usually say 'worst fear'. For example,

    What is your worst fear?

    I would personally ask it this way:

    What do you fear the most?

    But the first question is fine.
