Hi Ann, "sortir" is more "to go out" than "to leave". Of course, in order to go out, one has to leave home but partir is the proper choice of verb, in my opinion.

I agree with you, I think both of them work, and in any case the difference doesn't relate to the grammatical point that the test question is supposed to be getting at.
