Throughout the writing activity where I described the boys neighborhood, I continued to use "Tu" instead of "On" when it asked me to type "When you want to go out, you have a lot of choices!"
The correct answer according to the computer was "Quand on veut sortir, on a beaucoup de choix !"
Can someone explain why On is used instead of Tu?

In general, if you can change "you" for "one", your best choice will be "on". This is such a case, where you're talking about a general rule, not something that applies to just you (or the person you might be talking to). "When one (anyone) wants to go out, there are lots of choices".
