a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

Replace 'the most' with 'a'.

Some adjectives do not admit of comparison because their meaning is already superlative. 'Unique' is one such adjective.

The correct sentence should be: Everybody knows that Sonu Nigam is a unique singer of this industry.

Same applies for the following adjectives
Unique, Excellent, Major, Minor, Maximum, Minimum, Perfect, Complete, Whole, Full, Universal, Impossible, Ideal, Extreme, Entire, Full, Chief

Geometrical Shape - Round, Square, Spherical, Rectangular, Parallel, Triangular
Don't say:It is most extreme cold.
Say:It is extreme cold.
Don't say:More parallel / more triangular
Say:Parallel / triangular
Note that the above words already convey superlative sense.
