According to Google, "Elite" in Pashto is "Nakhba" (نخبه). Can anyone verify if this correct? Is it pure pashto?

Nakhba doesn't sound like an adjective. I checked it in Meaning of Elite in thePashto.com Dictionary and nothing came up. If you want to search up a word I recommend doing it in the aforementioned website as it is reliable. Only problem is that the Roman Pashto feature is pretty bad so if you can't write Pashto then it will be hard for you to do Pashto-English.

Late to the party, but I have read the whole post....
So for Jumping no one used 'Dangal'!
To Jump - 'دانګل'
Also 'ټوپ وهل', but the latter seems to be influenced by Arabic Grammar.

The closest word would be همتناک
When used in a sentence
Te yaw hemmatnak kas ye = you are one ambitious person

I could be wrong though, not an expert.
