    the most valuable or very valuable?

    Hello, teachers.

    I've found the following sentence:

    1. If you feel a thing to be most valuable to you, it does not make much difference whether it is expensive or not.

    Which of the following does this "most valuable" means?

    2. the most valuable
    3. very valuable

    Thank you very much in advance for your help.

    No it's not. "Most valuable" may be a better option for stylistic or stress purposes.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
