Bonjour Jennifer,

As the lesson states:

or people (e.g. despite myself), you can either use: - malgré + moi/toi/elle/lui/nous/vous/elles/eux

OR

en dépit de + moi-même/toi-même/elle-même/lui-même/nous-mêmes/vous-mêmes/eux-mêmes/elles-mêmes

So because the question had "elle" the correct answer can only be malgré. For en dépit de to be correct, you'd have to use elle-même.

Ah, thank you, missed that
