    can you help me?

    I didn't know when we use "most" and "most of"?
    How is it different?
    Please help me.

    'Most', without further context, refers to a general majority (Most mariners can swim), while 'most of' syntactically requires more specificity (Most of the mariners aboard can swim; most of a pomegranate is rind).

    I am sure that other members will have more to say on this.
