they don't need other ships by testing of Shandong

Again, why not put there one destroyer and/or frigate just to gain more experience ( both carrier and escort crew ) in what their primarly purpose is? Also, you can be pretty sure that foreign subs are waiting to follow Shandong, so why not have something to keep them worried a bit?

Please look at a map.

The test was done in Bohai Sea, an internal water of China. Any foreign ship entering Bohai without China's explicit permission is consider violation of China's sovereign territory, and can be subjected to attack and detention by PLAN. Also, Bohai has a narrow entrance and is fairly shallow. It is impossible for any foreign surface ship or submarine to enter without detection.
