Il me faudrait ressortir....

 I believe that my answer using "....il me faudrait ressortir" is a valid option here.  The system has provided "....je devrais ressortir" ; however, "devoir" doesn't seem appropriate because there is no suggestion of personal obligation or the idea of "must"/"should" mentioned in the question.

Hi Talk, 

As this is in a quiz and without context I cannot tell you whether your answer is correct or not. Re-post it using the Report It button on your correction board as it will link directly to the quiz in question.

Hoping it’s okay for me to interject. I believe that the verb falloir cannot be reflexive. So that we cannot say il me faut ressortir. Rather we can say il faut que je ressorte .  (In your example, il faudrait que je ressorte.) It is possible to say “il me faut” when the pronoun me is referring to a noun, the object of the sentence, as in “il me faut du temps” or “il me faut le couteau.” (I need/ must have some time. I must have/ need the knife.) Perhaps you could have written il me faudrait une deuxième sortie?
