"à plusieurs reprises" was not permitted for "several times", is it an incorrect answer in this context ?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
In this context, "à plusieurs reprises" does not work here as it implies the notion of effort, "over and over again", i.e. you "tackled" (reprise) it multiple times, vs the neutral "several times" that just states a number of times.
I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
