A fellow contacted me about an appointment on either next Tuesday or next Friday and asked me: "Please let me know which of the two dates would be most convenient for you." As a student of English, I'm thinking it would be correct to say, "more convenient for you."

Would "most convenient . . . " be correct If there were three or more options?

    Either would be fine; it would be quite ok and idiomatic to use both. Please use the search function for "more most" and you will see many, many threads that should explain the two very well. :)

    A: "What about a meeting in Birmingham on the 28th?"
    B: "Well, that would be most convenient as I will be in Birmingham that day."

    is most the superlative, or does it mean "very"?

    However, that small matter aside, 'more convenient' would be the way to say it.
