    Which one of you made a new friend the longest time ago?..

    Hello!
    If I want to ask a group of people about who made a new friend more close to today or more far from today, how do I ask?

    Which one of you made a new friend the longest time ago?
    Which one of you made a new friend the shortest time ago?

    I bet these examples are wrong, so would mind giving me a hand?

    Who's gone the longest without making a new friend?

    Is it correct to say 'Which of you made a new friend most long ago?'

    Is 'most long ago' ungrammatical or unnatural?

    Why is it ungrammatical to use the adverb 'most' to modify another adverb 'long'?
