Doesn't it depend how many people are being compared? I thought if the comparison was between two people the correct answer would be snellere, not snelst

Ja, maar "sneller" is een fout, zegt DuoLingo.

I assume you had a selection exercise. You cannot say het sneller.

"Hij is het snelst" and "Hij is de snelste" I believe are equally correct and interchangeable, however I was wondering whether there would be any situations where you would choose to say one over the other, or is it completely just a matter of style and choice which one prefers to say?
