What's longest time you've gone

Hello, everyone:

I read a yahoo answer: Truth and dares for 11 - 12 year old girls ?

Truths:Do you like anyone?
Have you ever picked your nose?
Have you ever done something you weren't supposed to do?
What's longest time you've gone without taking a shower/bath?

Is the "time" in bold print optional here? (i.e., the sentence is correct with or without it)

Thank you.

    Yes, "time" is optional. But there is a missing "the". It should be either of:

    What's the longest time you've gone...
    What's the longest you've gone...
