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?

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.
