It is bit confusing.

" Qui est cet homme? Does that not refer to a specific person? The why not "ill est? "

This relates to:
C'est, ce sont = this is, these are (demonstrative pronouns) -

Hi Ajit - I think you're referring to a different lesson (when to c'est versus il/elle est?). If so, that's explained here:
/revision/grammar/when-to-use-cest-or-il-est-elle-est-to-say-it-is

When referring to a specific person, you always used "C'est...".

Hope that helps.
