Direct object pronoun with “por más que...”

Direct object pronoun with “por más que...”

This is really a question about one of the quiz questions:

I correctly chose the response “por más que lo intento” ________, no consigo recordar todo el vocabulario.

But would it have been grammatically incorrect to say “por más que intento, no consigo...” ?

Hola A

Not incorrect, but it sounds a lot more natural to use "lo" in that sentence. In English you don't need the object "No matter how much I try..." (no matter how much I try it ...??), but in Spanish we do.
