This lesson is kind of confusing me. At school I learned that the superlative must come after the noun unless the adjective would come before the noun, and in that case the placement would be a choice. The French About page on superlatives also states this rule. So wouldn't "Marie est la plus intelligente fille de la classe" be incorrect?
This question relates to:French lesson "Forming the superlative of adjectives in complex cases"

Both examples are given in the lesson :
Marie est la plus intelligente fille de la classe
Marie est la fille la plus intelligente de la classe
Marie is the smartest girl in the class

The video's unavailable now, but I still hope a Kwiziq staff person will try to explain the discrepancy, or confirm that the lesson is correct.
