    I would have guessed AK for three out of four, counting the Aleutian Islands, of course.

    But it is still to the west, more so than any other usa state. From the op question, and the way it was stated, you are not winning this bet. I guess now we bar fight?

    I was asking for " most Eastern" not "furthest East from"

    I stand by my answer ... and only FreakyKBH can beat me in a bar fight!

    Farthest and furthest are superlative adjectives or adverbs. They are the irregular superlative forms of far. We use them to talk about distance. There is no difference in meaning between them. Furthest is more common than farthest

    In the U.S., farther and farthest are more often used to refer to physical distances; further and furthest
    more often refer to figurative and nonphysical distances, e.g., "I am the grandson who went furthest in
    school and traveled farthest to find a job." Some speakers use the two forms interchangeably, but only
    at the risk of weakening the language.

    Note: The problem refers to American geography.

    Le Mont Blanc est la plus haute montagne de France. Le pic chevauche la frontière
    franco-italienne dans la chaîne de montagne des Alpes et a une altitude de 15 781
    pieds (4 810 mètres). Le nom «Mont Blanc», qui en français signifie «montagne
    blanche», est dû en partie aux 40 galles carrées qui couvrent la montagne.
