determiner + superlative + noun (range)

B1 Point 48 in the category of ADJECTIVES is defined:

noun phrases with a range of determiners before a superlative adjective.


*This should include a range of nouns because at A2 it is a limited range.  One can guess that ‘my’ ‘your’ can still be B1 if the noun is not A1. We have removed some results that are clearly A2.
