Conjugating repartir

Conjugating repartir

The sentence was, "She is dividing the tasks," and we were supposed to fill in the blank with the verb "repartir." The correct answer was repartissez, but it just didn't sound right to me. I looked up the conjugation in three different places, and they all said it should be "repartez." Can you clarify this?

Hi Joanne, I think you have confused répartir with repartir. As it says in the lesson:

Note that the verb répartir is NOT a derivative of partir, but shares its root with the word repartition, and does follow the regular -IR conjugation.

Why are we using plural instead of singular and also using the ending issez (which is meant for vous) instead of Elle, singular with the ending it - I thought the sentence should be Elle répartit? Or I'm I missing something? Please help. Thanks in advance

I think the question was actually "You're distributing the tasks".
