    most, less, least

    My assumption are as follow in the bracket:

    1. the most polite way among three (right)

    2. the 2nd polite way among three (wrong)
    (the 2nd : should be replaced by the less)

    3. the least polite way among three (right)

    __________________________________________________ _____

    If there are four choice, then the sequence should go by
    1. the most
    2. the less
    3. ???
    4. the least

    Re: most, less, least

    Clear, but not particularly elegant:

    1. The most polite
    2. The second most polite
    3. The third most polite
    4. The least polite
