When you hit the reply button you should see a ribbon of format options just above the text area. Hit the quotation mark icon ( fourth from the left) to quote the post you are replying to.

Re: Quoting a comment

From what I’ve seen it quotes the whole post, certainly I’m unable to quote part of a users post on my iPad.

Re: Quoting a comment

Yes that's true.

You have to tab into the quoted text and delete what is not needed, or highlight in bold the text you are referring to. Works ok on my iPhone so should be the same on the iPad

You can also get creative with the edit HTML option.
