I am trying to get a better clue for expressions like 不但   而且 as I am preparing for HSK and know that such grammatical structures are typical parts of that exam. Would be great to get a list of possible examples and compare it with other expressions!

“不但...而且...”is used to describe two aspects or features of a thing or a person.

And the part after“而且”is the point that the speaker emphasized. And for the speaker, that part is more important than the another part after“不但” .

Furthermore, “不但......而且......”is always used in the positive condition.
