Hi

Which is the correct sentence and what tense is being tested in the correct sentence?

The test was quite easy. Although he got a few wrong.

I've never heard of a tense being tested, so I can't answer that part.

"Although he got a few wrong" is not a complete sentence. You need to combine that with what precedes, and the "although" seems to me to go more logically with the first part: "Although the test was quite easy, he got a few wrong."

The second example is OK as is. I'd put a comma after "Nevertheless".

Ok thanks for your constructive reply forget the tested bit.

So, what tense is this answer that you say is good ? An adverb clause?? like i said im trying to learn the language.

"The test was quite easy, nevertheless he got a few wrong"

thanks for your help

Soveida.
What tense? Past. (It can only be present or past.) "Adverb clause" can't be an answer to the question "What tense?" You have two main clauses here, both in the past tense.

The test was quite easy. Nevertheless, he got a few (answers) wrong.

"nevertheless" in itself is an adverb, if that's what you mean.

Hi

The test was quite easy. Nevertheless, he got a few wrong.

So this would point to the Past Simple tense ?

could this also refer to Transitions ?

showing opposition (unexpected result) ?

thanks
