______ John was exhausted but he still managed to win
b) even though
Which is the correct one & why?? Thks in advance!

although/even though John was exhausted, he still managed to win

I agree with the Guest that "but" should not be part of that sentence.

Anonymous:hi there, dear you can not use although/even though with but, say: although John was exhausted, he managed to win,you also used still in your sentence , how much conjuctions and subordinates etc, we can use one, although/even though, or still or but. try it yourself
Anonymoushi there, dear you can ...Please realize that it is not appropriate to address strangers, such as members of a forum, as "dear". Save that for your family members and very close friends and in the formula for beginning letters.
