Use of lui as subject pronoun

Use of lui as subject pronoun

Can someone  explain the use of lui as the subject in the quiz about taking 
care of a baby and passé composé? 

 The answer was” lui est reparti”. I wrote “il est reparti” after lui, thinking lui was only there for emphasis.

I’ve never seen lui used as the subject pronoun. Am I missing something?

Hi Johanna,

Can you re-post your query via the Report It button on your correction board as it will link directly to that quiz and we can look at it to see if there is indeed an error from our part?

Merci d'avance!

I couldn’t find report it, but tech support directed Me here. I’ve since sent in a screenshot which pinpoints the quiz problem.
