    When is best time

    When is the best time next week?

    What is the best time next week?

    Do these sentences convey the same meaning? Should I use "the' before 'best time"?

    Re: When is best time

    Only the second one is correct.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: When is best time

    They are equally acceptable to me (AmE), conveying the exact same meaning.

    Yes, in either case, you need the article 'the'.

    Re: When is best time

    They are both correct and mean the same thing. "The" is needed.
