"Got" is not necessary in the answer

How about "we have the most things here"? Why is this wrong? It sounds better to me.

We have most things here = most of our things are here. We have the most things here = we have more than all the others here.

And does anyone know how to say the second in Danish? I assume Vi har det det meste her is not the right answer.

This should be confirmed by someone who actually speaks Danish, but my feeling is that 'We have the most things here' means "Vi har det meste her.", whereas 'We have most (of our) things here' should be something like "Vi har de fleste her".

Isn't there another sentence in this exercise that reads "Vi har mest"? If so, why does it not use the "det"?
