Dear native English speakers,
I have a little question.
Which would be used, (a) or (b)?
(a) He is the most polite boy (who/that) I have ever met.
(b) He is the politest boy (who/that) I have ever met.

Would "seen" be possible instead of "met"?
(c) He is the most polite boy (who/that) I have ever seen.
(d) He is the politest boy (who/that) I have ever seen.

Thanks in advance.

Hirashin

Ending the sentences with "have ever known" is somewhat more natural than either of the ending variations you provided. (But your endings are acceptable, too.)
