albeit it may not be easy

Another problem sentence I found on my son's handout is this:

...albeit it may not be easy.

Can "albeit" be followed by a clause? I think "albeit" is only followed by adverb, like "albeit slowly", "albeit unwillingly".

Do you agree it is wrong? Or am I wrong?

    What is this handout?
    The part you quote is not a complete sentence.
    However, "albeit" should not be followed by a clause: it can be read as "although it be(is) ..." to determine whether it isiused correctly.

    I am just recalling it from memory so I don't remember the sentence before it. It comes from a comprehension worksheet.
