Hi Shruti,

Il écrit souvent à ses parents? - Non, il ne leur écrit jamais.

In this sentence you are replacing the indirect object "ses parents". Since it is 3rd person plural, the pronoun to use is "leur". In case of a direct object it is "les":

Tu as vu mes amis? - Oui, je les ai vu.

@Chris : Don't forget that when using direct object pronouns with auxiliary avoir, you need to agree with it, as it's placed before the auxiliary:

Tu les as vus.  or  Tu les as vues.

@Shruti: Have a look at our lesson on indirect object pronouns:
