Find IT difficult....
Hi all,
I have a question regarding the preparatory object IT in the expression "What I still find IT difficult is....". Is it necessary to use it in this instance? or "What I find difficult is..." is correct
 I know it is used in "I find IT difficult to remember names", but can I omit it in the cleft sentence "What I find (IT) difficult is...?.
Thanks in advance

Hello, absolutely you don�t use the IT in this phrase, you simply say "what I still find difficult is..."
Have a good day

Yes, the "it" is incorrect in that sentence, because "what" serves that purpose here.
