Please advise which of the following is correct:

I like this one most.

I like this one the most.

If both are fine, what is the difference in usage and in meaning?

Hi,

A. I like this one most.

B. I like this one the most.

I'd say B is grammatically correct. However, in speaking it's not uncommon to omit 'the' and use A. I wouldn't say that in speech, that's wrong.

Other people here may offer you a different opinion.

Best wishes, Clive

Hello

I think Superlative of adverbs ( examples) will be helpful to you.

Be sure that there are at least three items under consideration. For only two, the correct sentence would be 'I like this one more', but not 'the more'.
I am confused. Isn't 'most' an adverb modifying the verb 'like' in the sentence? How can an adverb have an article?
