Use of "en" to indicate "it" - one of something.
I've become comfortable thinking of "en" as "some" or "some of them" as in
your example "Il m'en a offert." But it's use as "it" in "Elle leur en a parlé" is throwing me. Why "en" and not "Elle la/le leur a parlé" ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Indirect object + en (double pronouns)"

In addition to "some," en has a separate meaning: it replaces de + something.
For example, Elle leur a parlé de son idée --> Elle leur en a parlé: lesson.
