"Why didn't you tell him the truth right away" was marked wrong for me. Can someone please explain how to know the correct gender with this kind of sentence construction?

It's a question of tense, not gender: the French sentence is in the present, your translation is in the past. Apart from that, both 'him' and 'her' are possible translations of "lui" in this case.
