Bonjour Madame Aurélie ! Quelle est la personne que tu admires le plus ? Should not it be “la”?

Hi Varsha, 

In this case the superlative "le plus" is modifying the verb "admirer", and adverbs have no gender so they always use the masculine form:

Le plus and le moins = the most and the least (superlative of adverbs)

However, if it were modifying a noun then you would agree with the gender:

Le, la, les plus and le, la, les moins = the most and the least (superlatives of adjectives)

Hope that helps!
