question about the using of AMONG. Federal government's armed forces were among the most powerful in the world. I am confused this sentence means whether it is the most powerful or one of the most powerful? thank you.

It means ONE of the most powerful. :) "Among" or "Amongst" (Depending on whether you're on the British side of things or not) indicates that it is counted as "a part of" these powerful armed forces. Hope this helps.
