why is partir right ans sortir wrong pleas. i thought sortir is to go out so would be acceptable here, but isn't
is for same question as below, will you have left by 4 oclock
The verbs 'sortir' and 'partir' are often confused but they mean different things.
sortir= to go out / to come out
partir = to leave / to go
The actual Kwiz question was:
So partir is correct here and not sortir.
Hope this helps!
I haven't looked at the text, but the first thing that comes to my mind is the issue of transitivity.
Partir does not take a direct object. Sortir can take a direct or indirect object depending upon whether used with avoir or être.
