Q : _____ this is only Ms. Planter's third week,
she has quickly become a standout in company presentations.
(a) Although (b) In spite of (c) Nevertheless (d) However
I know that answer is (A). but I also come up with that (c) is answer, too.
It's not correct?
I'd use "nevertheless" in the second part of the sentence, rather than in the very beginning of it: "This is the third week of Mrs...., but nevertheless she has quickly become a standout in company presentations" - just like that, the same with "however" It has some other shade of meaning - presupposing some contradictory statement coming before it, not after. But mind, I'm not a native speaker, so I may be not quite aware of these meanings :-I
