               You should say:

 what you did *

 why you took this risk *

 and explain how you were successful.

              

Notes

  • At least two people have reported a topic something like this - "Describe a time when you took a risk but were successful in the end." The word, "risk" was mentioned by both of hese two people. People sometimes take risks when they want to impress others so Topic 1035 might actually be this topic. The risk might not necessarily be a risk to your physical safety (such as climbing a dangerous mountain). People also risk losing their money when they go to a casino and place a bet of say, $100. You also risk bankruptcy when you start a business, or risk other examples of failure in life. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". Possibly the topic is really something like previous topics about being adventurous, or previous topics about excitement.

  • We say, "risk + noun" where the noun is something negative such as, "risk injury", "risk being killed", "risk losing money", "risk failure", "risk bankruptcy", "risk offending someone", "risk losing a friendship", "risk (losing) your marriage" etc etc. "Risk" is similar in meaning to "danger" but we don't say, "take a danger". Instead, one "puts himself or herslef in danger of failure, injury" etc.

  • It is possible that this Part 2 does not exist but is actually a Part 3 section about "Risks" in Topic 1010, An Exciting Time.
