What is the difference between " among" and "of" in the given context?

1: I like botany among all the subjects.
2: I like botany of all the subjects.

Can I use both interchangeably or they mean different?


Among, of, and out of are all essentially interchangeable in this context. However, it sounds a little unusual to mention the other subjects, since they are irrelevant to you liking botany. It sounds more natural to actually draw the comparison:

I like botany.

Among all the subjects, I prefer botany.

Of all the subjects, I favor botany.

I like botany the best (or the most) out of all the subjects.
