Rapidement vs vite

So, rapidement and vite are synonymous; however when I typed in vite for Henri runs quickly, it was marked as incorrect. Because they are synonymous, I feel that «vite» should be included as a correct response as well as rapidement.

Not synonymous, rapidement is used with speed and probably better thought of as fast rather than quick.
