    Difference between "most" and "most of the"

    Hi everyone, I am not sure when I use "most" and "most of the" in a sentence. Please help me.

    Most people/most of the people in India are not aware of the availability of top-up covers to supplement basic health insurance covers.


    Most ccompanies/most of the companies in Toronto made huge profits this year.

    In those sentences, they're both correct (although you have misspelt "companies" at the start of the second example sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you emsr. I have seen that the first one is used most. Which is more formal in the two sentences: 'most' or 'most of the'? And do they mean the same?
