Reply to "most interesting"

Hello, Azz,

In your first set of sentences (a) to (c) (next time, please use different letters if you provide new examples within the same thread), I think "most interesting" can only mean "extremely interesting."

The superlative will require the pronoun "one," a generic noun like "thing" (or "person"), or the presence in the immediately preceding context of a noun which might be considered to be implicit in the sentence that follows, for example:

A: What was the most interesting thing you saw during your stay in Paris?

B: The most interesting (thing we saw) was what we saw on the fifth day of our stay in Paris.
