    superlative comparison

    Help me with this question:
    Compared to everyone else in her family, she drives _______ carefully.
    A. as B. more C. most D. the most
    I choose D. What about you?

    Another question. Compare
    I like eating Italian food (the) most.
    I like eating Italian food (the) best.

    To the best of knowledge these two sentences are the same in meaning, is that correct? Is the article "the" optional? Which one is more preferred in the UK and the US?

    Thank you.

    Re: superlative comparison

    I'd say A, B or C work. But I'd choose B in an exam.

    The thread title is superlative comparison, but B is not the superlative.
