    (A. Among B. Of) all the brands of sports shoes, I like Nike most.

    Re: among or of

    I would use B ("of").

    Re: among or of

    ems, you are mellowing. You didn't even ask the OP what his/her thoughts were first
    I too would use "of" but couldn't call "among" incorrect.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: among or of

    You're right. I'm having one of those days! I've found typos in most of my posts, long after they've been posted. I've missed various points, I think I've helped someone with their homework and I did indeed fail to ask the OP for their answer first.

    I think I might have a little lie-down!
