The meaning of 'best' and 'most'


Senior Member

I wonder that these two sentences have the same meaning?

1.Which animal do you like ''best''.
2.Which animal do you like ''most''.

Especially when you want to say something or someone you like more than the other in a particular group.

Thanks for help^^_

    I would only use 'best' if I had a definite and positive favourite.
    I would tend to go for 'most' when I had no favourite and my choice is more a matter of which I dislike the least.
