Hello!

I'm citing from Cambridge online dictionary:


"The most with a verb


We use the most with a verb as an adverb:
They all cried, but Claire cried the most."




Why then, we ask: " What annoys you most in life?"

It's part of a phrase.

What annoys you most in life?
What annoys you most about it?
What do you like most about it?

On the other hand:

What about it do you like the most?
