Ever heard of the LEC (Language Evaluation Criteria) ? I had to write a paper on this topic few months back, demonstrate how a language can really be "better" than another without holding an opinion. Interesting stuff. https://www.radford.edu/~nokie/classes/380/intro/intro3.html

not better, but different. -Tomcat can deal with Java and Kotlin - Prolog is a describing and not imperative language -Scratch is good for young ones -Python has a huge amount of legacy modules -Ruby has its strong in Ruby on rails... My very own parameters are: little typing libraries communitie

I really think that depends on what u want to build, depending on that, u can say that one is better than the other. for example, mobile application, then go with Java, if say c#, c# is usually preferred to build windows apps. game dev is usually done with unity and back with c# again. web, certainly people's taste, u can do as much stuff as u want with basically all the OOP langs. But differs in their frameworks, such as JavaScript having different frameworks for the front, back, ect. php having laravel, yii, etc frameworks. Hope this was useful :-) btw, the parameters u r asking can be it's speed when working, extendability (ie can u easily make a bigger and better project with ur language of choice), reusability ( ie can u re use the code u wrote elsewhere), and easiness to learn the language itself I presume.

We can consider this question in two angles.If we say it in running speed,C++is the best.But if we consider about the development speed,(I think,)python is faster.
