Why? I must have used it sometime :P -Good evening, did you brought what i asked of you? (Καλησπέρα, έφερες αυτό που σου ζήτησα;) -Good evening, no, i forgot! (Καλησπέρα, όχι, το ξέχασα.) In greece (and i think in other countries too) one always answers to good evening/morning etc. Not doing so sounds a bit rude.

That takes SOME stretch of the imagination, though... This "phrase" is just gibberish and nothing more. Maybe a line taken directly from Lanthimos's film Dogtooth... :-D

Surely it is how James Bond greets his nemesis in the Greek version of the eponymous first film.

Καλησπέρα can be "good afternoon" as well.

Is this a real, existing phrase similar to 'Good evening, isn't it?' or is it just testing whether we know what these individual words mean?

Just testing! I'm sure no one would actually say this, but it's possible to construct some kind of context to it (see above comments).
