    I don’t really understand the way in which “daibiao” is used here.

    Shouldn’t it be something like: “zhumulangmafeng daibiao xuduo ren shenghuo zhong (de) zui da de tiaozhan” ?

    Hi Jonathan,

    Actually both sentences (yours and ours) are correct. Yours sounds like a more direct translation from English whereas our would sound awkward if literally translated:

    Zhūmùlǎngmǎfēng shì tāmen shēnghuó zhōng zuì dà tiǎozhàn de dàibiǎo: Mount Everest is their life’s biggest challenge representation.

    We like to mix things up once in a while, to give you a better feel for the language. Thanks for your comment!
