 Part One : Reading Comprehension
1- Read the following text carefully, and then answer the questions below :

Independence Day, May 25, 2008, was very special. On that day, Mustafa Salameh Mahmoud became
the first Jordanian man to climb Mount Everest. He has now climbed all seven of the world's highest
mountains and so has joined an elite club. Apart from exhaustion and a little frostbite, Mr Mahmoud was
in good health and very happy after the five-day climb.
For much of the climb Mr Mahmoud had been fighting extreme cold, strong winds, dizzying heights and
dangerously low levels of oxygen, but he was able to reach the top of Mount Everest and plant the
Jordanian flag at the summit. It was very difficult, but he knew he had a great team supporting him and
this helped him to keep going.
Mr Mahmoud had begun the trip at the Everest Base Camp in Tibet and carried with him heavy climbing
equipment, oxygen tanks, food and a Jordanian flag presented by His Royal Highness Prince Faisal. It
was his third attempt at the summit, and he had been preparing for it for many months. The first try had
nearly killed him and the second ended through illness. He knew it would be the hardest thing he had
ever done and was nervous despite the fact that he was an experienced climber.
When asked why he had kept on trying, Mr Mahmoud told reporters that he wanted to inspire the next
generation of Arab youth to believe in their "impossible" dreams. His efforts were noticed at home, and
King Abdullah donated sponsorship money for the expedition. This sponsorship had allowed him to give
up his job and train for a year to reach the very high levels of fitness needed to climb the huge mountain.
This is only the latest in a series of achievements for Mr Mahmoud, who apart from climbing the world's
seven highest peaks has a Master's degree, is a fluent English and Japanese speaker and a fitness
instructor.

1- According to the second paragraph, a lot of hard conditions were associated with Mr Mahmoud's third
attempt to climb Everest. Mention them?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2- Whom was Mr Mahmoud's expedition sponsored by?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3- Quote a sentence from the fourth paragraph which shows that Mr Mahmoud's efforts were nationally
recognised.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4- Find a word in paragraph four which means ( motivate )----------------------------------------------------------------

5- What does the underlined pronoun (their) in paragraph four refer to?-----------------------------------------------

Part One : READING COMPREHENSION
1- extreme cold, strong winds, dizzying heights and dangerously low levels of oxygen,
2- His Royal Highness Prince Faisal
3- His efforts were noticed at home, and King Abdullah donated sponsorship money for the expedition.
4- inspire
5- the next generation of Arab youth
6- Yes he is justified because he mentioned that reaching Everest is only the latest achievement in a
series of achievements for Mr Mahmoud, who apart from climbing the world's seven highest peaks has
a Master's degree, is a fluent in English and Japanese and a fitness instructor.

B- Critical Thinking.
This is undoubtedly true, and I totally agree with this proverb because success can't be achieved
easily without making effort. So, in my point of view I think that this proverb applies to different areas of
life, because without working hard your goals can't be achieved at all and you'll never be successful
and effective in your life.
