Hi,

From my understanding, "Nevertheless" basically function the same as "however" or "but". Am I correct with it?

I read this sentence below from OG RC practice, I am wondering does nevertheless change the meaning of the sentence due to the existence of the prior "but"? Or the author wants to address the meaning of the sentence by using those two connections at the same time?

Government policy has placed a priority on reducing inflation, but these efforts have nevertheless caused unemployment to increase.

Hope I made my question clear

Cheers,
Sally

Hi SallyLi,

According to me, usage of however in verbal section, especially sentence correction, means however only (you can spot the same meaning in any official example). But the same might not apply to RC.

Government policy has placed a priority on reducing inflation, but these efforts have nevertheless caused unemployment to increase.

In the above sentence, usage of but indicates contrast and usage of nevertheless after main verb in the second clause might conveys to show 'anyhow'.

Government policy has placed a priority on reducing inflation, but these efforts have (nevertheless) anyhow caused unemployment to increase.

Let's wait for expert's insight on the same.

Always try to learn different usages from official SC not CR or RC!
Here are two official SC correct answers:

1. Research has shown that when speaking, individuals who have been blind from birth and have thus never seen anyone gesture nonetheless make hand motions just as frequently and in the same way as sighted people do, and that they will gesture even when conversing with another blind person.

2. Less successful after she emigrated to New York than she had been in her native Germany, photographer Lotte Jacobi nevertheless earned a small group of discerning admirers, and her photographs were eventually exhibited in prestigious galleries across the United States.
