This is a trick question. Yes Mandarin Chinese is the language spoken by the most people, but English is the language spoken most around the entire world. The question asks what is the most "WIDELY" spoken language in the world, meaning what is the language spoken most around the entire globe. It should be worded as "What is the language spoken by the most people in the entire world." for Mandarin to be the correct answer.
 

John Adney

The question asked for the most widely spoken language in the world, not the most widely-spoken first language. The former is english and the latter, mandarin.
