    Let me start with "most" and "the most":

    For "famous", to form superlative, you need to add "most". However, why you cannot choose "the most", because there is "his". Using "his" or "the" is to "specify" the situation. When you use "his the most", you overkill the specification. It means you only use "the most famous" (the unique one(s)) or "his most famous" (the one he has).

    "best" is the superlative of "good". Hence, you don't place in front of another adjective "famous". After all, this is NOT the right way to form superlative for "famous".

    "very" is used as an adverb here. It doesn't form the superlative for "famous". Even though it is correct to use in the questioned sentence.

    In your questioned sentence, it mentioned "fairy tales, ghost stories, or romances". It indicated THREE items for comparison, so the best answer shall be a)most

    It indicated THREE items for comparison,

    ==> It indicated there are more than THREE items for comparison,

    2014-10-12 08:03:01 補充:

    Since the sentence is to compare (using superlative form), not to emphasize (using "very"), you would choose "a)most" to do the superlative comparison.

    the most famous xxx

    his most famous xxx

    都是形容詞famous的最高級用法

    後者因為加了定詞his,所以就不能再用the了。

    best是good/well的最高級,不能用在另一個形容詞或副詞前面讓它升級

    同理very是一個副詞,也不能用在另一個形容詞或副詞前面讓它升級

    a)most b)very d)best應該都可以的!但是a)most還是最好
