In sentences such as the following, how is most best understood?
1) Most children do not like cauliflower.
2) Most of the balls in the bucket are red.
I suppose there are three or more possible interpretations for most in these sentences.
A) a plurality (at least one more than any other alternative)
B) a majority (more than half, even if barely more)
C) a comfortable majority (well more than half)
For sentence 1, interpretations A and B would be equivalent since there are only two alternatives.
