What about "the most" please?

Hi, Tara -- The sentence "I answered the most difficult questions" means that, in a set of questions of varying levels of difficulty (easy questions, slightly challenging questions, difficult questions, and very difficult questions), the speaker answered the questions that were the most difficult, i.e., the very difficult ones. The sentence can also be phrased like this: "I answered the questions that were the most difficult."

Thanks a lot
