Superlative Degree  

The superlative degree of adjectives or adverbs is formed by putting the definite article or a possessive pronoun before the comparative. When el (la, lo) is used as the article, both the comparative and superlative have the same form.

Let's look at a few examples:

Positive: bueno - good
Comparative: mejor - better
Superlative: el mejor - best

Positive: rico - rich
Comparative: más rico - richer
Superlative: el más rico - richest

Positive: aprisa - quickly
Comparative: más aprisa - more quickly
Superlative: lo más aprisa - most quickly

Example Sentences
Ése es el más rico de todos.
That man is the richest of all.
Ésa es mi mejor pluma.
That is my best pen.
Ése es el más rico de los dos.
That man is the richer of the two.

After a superlative de is used for the English ' in.'
