There’s just no way Clair failed a test as simple as the one you get. It’s clearly meant to just be a “Pokemon are our friends” message for the player without being too hard for the young kids, but in universe it makes no sense.

Speaking of in universe, go ahead and check Bulbapedia for some of Clair’s actual quotes from the game, particular those involved with the cell phone sidequest. She’s so adorable around the player sometimes and you can tell she’s obviously acting tougher than she really is, and you know how these things almost always have a name.
