不但…而且… vs 不但…反而…

———————————–

budan…       erqie…

     不但 …      而且…    

(Not only…but also…)

Example 1:这家饭馆的菜不但好吃,而且便宜!

This restaurant’s food is not only delicious, but also cheap.

Example 2: 她不但漂亮,而且聪明。

She is not only pretty, but also very bright.

****************************

budan…   fan’er… 

但…  反而 …

(not only… but on the contrary…)

Example 1:他不但没有帮助我,反而给我添了很多麻烦!

 He was not only unhelpful, but on the contrary caused a lot of trouble for me.

Example 2: 妈妈不但没有生气,反而说他这样做是对的。

Mother not only did not get angry, but, on the contrary, said what he did was right.
