    As Nawfel said, (a) is correct.
    (b) would also be correct if you added 'are' - i.e. Most of the people are happy.

    There is a slight difference in meaning. (a) generally refers to all people. You would use my version of (b) to refer to a smaller group of people.
    e.g. "I went to Spain recently. Most of the people are happy..."

    most poeple are happy
