As far as I know, when using "most" as an adverb to describe a verb we can omit "the" .
1-They all cried, but Claire cried the most.
1'-They all cried, but Claire cried most.
But when using "most" before an adverb, should I use "the" before "most" ?
2-The question that is asked the most often.
2'-The question that is asked most often. (It is the most often asked question of a number of questions or It is just asked very often?)
