à plusieurs reprises instead of plusieurs fois ?

"à plusieurs reprises" was not permitted for "several times", is it an incorrect answer in this context ?

Thanks

Paul.

Bonjour Paul,

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 !
