Synonyms of "World" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between the best of the world and the best in the world ?
A: Best of the world means that it is "among the best of its kind" in the world.

Best in the world seems to have a more superlative feeling. Not "among the best of its kind", but actually "the best of its kind".

Both are very close in meaning and likely depend on context and what sounds better to the speaker's own ear and meaning. Hope that helps.
Q: What is the difference between "what in the world is going on?" and "what is going on in the world?" ?

"what in the world" is an expression commonly used for many things, when you don't clearly understand something. "What in the world is on your face?" "What in the world are you eating?" "What in the world did she say?" "Why in the world did you cut your pretty hair?" "What in the world is going on?"

"What is going on in the world" means "what is happening around the world?" or, "what is happening on this planet" or "what is happening in countries around the world?"
Q: What is the difference between what's in the world! and that's absurd! ?
A: The phrase is "what in the world...?!" Which is more of a reaction to something unexpected. For example, if you were to come home to find your house a mess and a pig running around the house covered in mustard you'd likely say "what in the world...?!" And either leave it at that or follow it with "...happened here?!" Or "...is going on?!"

"Thats absurd" is more of an exclamation reaction to something you heard. For example, your father has been told that your mother is dead when he knows for a fact she is only asleep in their bedroom and cries, "that's absurd! I just gave her a sleeping pill an hour ago and she is fine."
Q: What is the difference between "what in the world!" and "that's absurd!" ?
