No improvement

B

by far the brightest

by far the brightest

Correct Answer
C

so far most bright

D

No improvement

by so far the brighter

Solution

option B is the correct answer here,

let's understand the difference between by far and so far.

 by far is a way of emphasising. e.g. "it's the best by far" (it's MUCH better than anything else) or "it's the worst by far (it's MUCH worse). So far means up until this point in time/until now. e.g. "So far I have only read half the book" or "So far I have visited two countries (but I want to visit more)"
