Why the le

Elle ne le fait pas, bien qu'elle le puisse.

 

 

 

Why is there a le in the dependent clause that begins with bien que

Salut Lori,

"Elle ne le fait pas, bien qu'elle le puisse."  --> She doesn't do it, although (or despite) that she could do it.

Pouvoir (to be able to do something) is a transitive verb so takes an object, in this case "le"

Bonne Journée

It's very common in French to repeat the "it" where in English it can be omitted.

Elle ne le fait pas, bien qu'elle le puisse. -- She doesn't do it even though she could (do it).
