Que est cet homme? C'est Marc Dupre.

This is a test question. Why is this not "Il est Marc Dupre!"? It seems to be a very specific prementioned thing. It is not case 1. Is it really case 2a?

This question relates to:

I agree with your reasoning on this, a named person is quite specific.

Hi Thomas, I think that was a typo is it should be "QUI est cet homme?" With people, it's the first rule that applies. The second rule is applicable to things. I hope that helps, Gruff.
