Do quitter and Partir both mean to leave?
I was asked in a C1 test to complete the sentence, " Après....., ils se sont perdus". After leaving, they got lost.
I wrote, "Après avoir quitté, ils se sont perdus". It was marked incorrect. Why?
This question relates to:French lesson "Après être allé = After going (auxiliary être)"
You can't use quitter on its own, it requires an object.
See Partir, laisser, quitter, sortir = To leave
