Degrees of comparison

0

  1. This girl is more intelligent than the rest of the class.
  2. This girl is the most intelligent than the rest of the class.

Which one is the right one? As far as I know, we use "than + comparative adjective" for comparison, but "the rest of the class" makes me confused.

The first one is grammatically correct!

'Most' means the best out of a group, so you could say "This girl is the most intelligent girl in the class." if you wanted.
