Hi, help with quand v lorsque
Can you please help? I have just had « Je rentrerai lorsque il sera parti » marked as incorrect. The correct answer being « Je rentrerai quand il sera parti ». I had thought that quand and lorsque were interchangeable in this sense. Would appreciate some help.
This question relates to:French lesson "Quand, lorsque, après que, une fois que + Le Futur Antérieur = 'when, after I've done in the future"

In this instance, quand and lorsque will both be correct. However, I think lorsque + il requires an obligatory elison to lorsqu'il and makes it slightly less accurate.
