Why/When is it "het zwaarst" and not "de zwaarste"? I can't figure it out.

"de zwaarste" focusses more on it being an object, the heaviest of the bags "het zwaarst" stresses more it being a superlative.

Hope this explains things a bit.

Both are possible, but I have seen/heard "Welke tas is het zwaarst?" in use more often. There is no (substantial) difference in meaning.

Do you need an article or can you just say "welke tas is zwaarst"?
