    Most (adverb): most or the most?

    Hello!

    I'm citing from Cambridge online dictionary:


    "The most with a verb


    We use the most with a verb as an adverb:
    They all cried, but Claire cried the most."



    Why then, we ask: " What annoys you most in life?"

    Re: Most (adverb): most or the most?

    It's part of a phrase.

    What annoys you most in life?
    What annoys you most about it?
    What do you like most about it?

    On the other hand:

    What about it do you like the most?
