With regard to surface exposition, Lake superior is the largest of lakes, while Lake Baikal is the deepest, but Caspian Sea by and large is the largest fresh water lake(relative when it comes to fresh water.That is the G K i have had from childhood, if it is changed, require statistics and data are to be furnished.
