# English

There were five children in the family.
1. Ann got best of all the children.
----------------------------------
Is #1 grammatical? Does #1 mean "Ann became (the) best of all the children?"

1. 0
2. 2
1. #1 reads as if Ann got the best present or something tangible.

Do you have context for this sentence? The whole paragraph would be good.
