Which one is correct: The best choice or Best choice ?

Postby centrec » Mon Sep 20, 2010 9:30 pm

Hello,
I am having a little bit of trouble figuiring out which one is more correct or whether they are both correct?

1. The best choice
2. Best choice.

If someone could clarify differences between them and when to use "Best choice" and "The Best choice"

Thank you in advance

We must usually put "the" in front of a superlative adjective, so this should normally be:

the best choice

(However, occasionally you might see "Best Choice" (perhaps with a big star), for example in a comparison of products or set of reviews in a magazine etc. This is acceptable but only in special cases.)

See superlative adjectives
