The Milky Way Galaxy is the second largest galaxy, after Andromeda, in the Local Group. The Triangulum Galaxy (a.k.a., the Star Wars galaxy) is the third largest.
The Local Group contains about 30 galaxies, including dwarf galaxies.
No, in fact it is the second-largest galaxy, after M31. Most of the other members of the Local Group are dwarf galaxies.
Mars is not a galaxy! It is a planet in our solar system.
It is the largest galaxy in our local group, but there are larger galaxies elsewhere in the universe.

No. The Milky Way is one of the larger galaxies.
The two most massive members of the local group are the Milky Way (Our Galaxy) and the Andromeda Galaxy. The Andromeda Galaxy is the largest but it may not be the most massive, as recent findings suggest that the Milky Way contains more dark matter and may be the most massive in the local group.
Our local galaxy group is known as the Local Group.
The two most massive members of the Local Group are the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy.
No. The Milky Way is one of the three large galaxies - out of a total of perhaps 20 or 30 galaxies in the Local Group.
No, The Local Group is not. The local group is just an small cluster of a few galaxies on the outskirts of the Local Super-cluster which the Virgo cluster is in the center of it.
The ONLY galaxy in the "local milky way" is the Milky Way itself. If you're asking what the largest galaxy in the local group is, the Andromeda Galaxy is the largest by size but the Milky Way may be slightly larger by mass. It's definitely one of those two by any reasonable criterion, though.
A group of galaxies is called a galaxy cluster. Our local galaxy cluster, which includes our galaxy, the Milky Way, is known as the Local Group.
