- Published on 17 Jan 17

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

Replace 'first' with 'foremost'.

'First' shows 'order or position'

'Foremost' shows 'the most notable'.

The correct sentence should be: It is a fact that John F. Kennedy was the foremost politician of his time.

For e.g.
He is the foremost dancer of our time.
She was the foremost leader of her time.
First in beauty is first in might.
The first edition was published in the year 1995.
Note: First and foremost can be used together in a sentence, when the idea in the sentence is to be intensified.

e.g. Our first and foremost duty is to protect our motherland.
