This relates to:
Replacing people with lui, leur = him, her, them (indirect object pronouns) -

Hi Zaira, the answer is "leur" because in French you say "demander à quelqu'un".
So you need the indirect pronominal object (leur) and not the direct one (les). Here are two examples:


Je parle aux (à+les) enfants. --> Je leur parle. 
(aux enfants = indirect object)
Je cherche les clés. --> Je les cherche. 
(les clés = direct object)
