Contrastive conjunctions link two ideas that are considered  to be different.
Examples of contrastive conjunctions include:  but, though, on the other hans, however, in contrast, on the contrary, instead, nevertheless, yet, still, even so, neither … nor.
Example
1.The new city hall is amazing but it’s going to cost a lot.
2. He’s quite short, whereas his sister is tall.
3. Although I studied hard, I couldn't pass my English Exam.
4. Even though the government has taken up many literacy programs, literacy levels among 12-15 year olds do not appear to be improving.
5. No doubt, the use of elcetronic equipment has increased our standard of living. On the other hand, people has become very dependent.
