    prepositions

    Hi there,

    money is not the most important thing in life.
    it was the happiest day of my life.
    My question is about using in or of in the superlative form,
    Could you help? Are there any grammar rules to be followed?

    Thank you.

    I am not sure what you mean. The prepositions are relating to "life" in both sentences. The superlatives are not relevant to them. The context of the sentence will govern what preposition can be used.

    Money is not the most important thing in life.
    Money is not the most important thing for success
    Money is not the most important thing to the contented man.

    It was the happiest day of my life.
    It was the happiest day in my life.
    It was the happiest day for my parents.
