What is the meaning of the sentence? I have some confusion, please make it clear.
1. I expect the least from someone = I expect the most minimum thing from someone.
2. I expect the least from someone = I don't expect at all from someone or I have least expectation from someone.

Which one is correct?

The definition is correct but you can't say "most minimum" and you don't need "thing".
I expect the minimum from someone/people/some people.

2. I expect the least from someone = I don't expect anything at all from someone (this definition is incorrect); or I have the least expectation of someone (this definition is also correct and means the same as definition 1).

Which one is correct?
