    Could You Please help me with this sentence?

    Is it right to say and write: This is one of the most well-educated generation (ever)

    Or: This is one of the most best-educated generation (ever)

    Thank You!

    Best to express it as: "This is one of the best-educated generations ever". Note the plural generations. You are saying something about one of several generations.

    It's nice to know you are very grateful, VeryGrateful, but you don't need to send your thanks in a separate post.

    One more thing: a better title would have been The most well-educated generation.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
