A question from an exam:

Complete the sentence below. Use the words given in ( ).
Jane is said ( have / difficulty / without / one it / to / any ).

I think the answer should be Jane is said to have one it without any difficulty., but I don't understand at all what this sentence means. Especially, the one it-part...It doesn't make any sense to me.

Crikey! It doesn't make sense to me- with 'one it' locked together, I cannot fathom out the answer. ;-(

Jane is said to have done it without any difficulty.

Obviously a typo.

You didn't look at it from the right angle, or maybe you were just tired.
