    I most want to help

    Are these sentences both correct:
    1-These are the people I want to help most.
    2-These are the people I most want to help.


    I think "1" can mean the same as "2' but it could also mean: I want to help them more than I help anyone else.

    "Best" could modify both "want" or "to help". The sentence is ambiguous, although probably in real life the difference would not be really important.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: I most want to help

    I would say yes to both questions and assume that best is a typo and should read most.
