    Hi everyone,
    I wanted to know if it's correct to say "the character that impressed me most" or " the character that impressed me the most". Or are they both correct ? Thank you .

    Both are correct. You can hear both said. In written English, I only use the second one (i.e., the most). I am not sure why.

    What strikes me "THE most" or "most"?

    Hi everybody
    Everything's in the title!
    I've found both on the internet, and I don't know if they are both correct.
    Thanks for your help! (and goodnight ;)

    As far as I know, both are correct. I hear both versions often, and neither has ever bothered me!

    Yes, either version is correct.

    I'm wondering if I should use "most" or "the most" in the following sentence:

    On Sunday people do what they like most (or "the most): relaxing.

    I would say that "most" without the article THE is correct.

    I think either is acceptable. I believe that "the most" is OK, but in practice people quite often omit "the", and I'd probably omit it myself.
