    ultimate

    He is the ultimate achiever in this field.
    He is the ultimate scholar in this field.
    He is the ultimate doctor in our neighbourhood.


    Are these sentences correct?

    Re: ultimate

    I will be more glad if you say me what the first two sentences mean.

    I can understand the first two sentences as, "He is the best achiever in this field"; "He is the best scholar in this field".

    Please help me.

    Is it because a doctor cannot be the best? Why ultimate doesn't work for the doctor?
