    Most of the Time vs Most of the Times

    1. Most of the times I felt it good. Is it incorrect to use times? Here I referred to 'most of the encounters with him'
    2. Most of the days or most days - which is correct?

    Re: Most of the Time vs Most of the Times

    1. Your use of the definite article the indicates you have already specified certain instances. In that case, it's okay to use times.

    2. Here it makes a difference whether you have already mentioned or specified certain days. If you have, then it's correct to further divide the days already mentioned into the days. If you are speaking in general, then most days would be correct.
