n'importe qui vs quelqu'un

in lesson it says to use quelqu'un for a question, making it sound like should use n'importe qui for all other affirmative anyone. Yet question stating? stole my bag  n'importe qui is marked wrong and quelqu'un is stated as correct answer.

I'm missing something, could anyone plaese explain? thanks

It's a similar difference as between "someone" and "anyone" in English.

Someone stole my luggage. -- Quelqu'un a volé mes bagages.
Just pick anyone! -- Choisissez n'importe qui!
