Who was the First Man to climb Mount Everest

(A) Tenzing Norgay
(B) Edmund Hillary
(C) Bachendri Pal
(D) Peter Hillary

Correct Answer : Edmund Hillary
Explanation : Edmund Hillary was the first man to climb Mount Everest. Andrew Irvine and George Mallory started climbing the Mount Everest and as per another climber Nicole, he saw them only 270 m below the peak. That means Irvin and Mallory came closest to the peak in June 1924. However, they died there. However, as there is no proof, It is considered that Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay are the first persons to climb the Everest in year 1953. After many years (in 1999), other climbers found out some of their (Andrew Irvine and George Mallory) equipment and the frozen dead body of George Mallory. But they never found out the camera, in which photograph may have been taken of their victory.
