Just simple question I got two exactly same score on 2 verbal cats but I feel like I clearly performed better in one of them according to the data. Is there something strange?

Just as benchmark with Manhattan GMAT CAT I got the following

500: 2 (100%)
600: 11 ( 74%)
700: 28 ( 50%)

Which gave me a 34 on verbal.

Thank you. I would suggest not worrying about how many questions you got wrong or right.
There are a few things that go into the scoring and one of them is the difficulty of questions. We consider most of our Verbal question to be average difficulty. As the result, it may take more questions answered correctly to get a certain score.
