    for most part

    Dear teachers,

    Today's problems are caused _____ by modern factors.
    a. for the most part b. for most part
    The key is 'b'. The explanation says 'a' suggests 'superlative degree'. But I can't find the phrase 'for most part' in my dictionary. So 'a' should be the key. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    a. is what native speakers say, at least where I am.
