    1:-Somebody entered the room,-didn't he? Do leave a space between the punctuation mark and the next word.
    2:-Somebody entered the room,-didn't they?
    #2 would be correct with proper spacing.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you" to anyone. Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find useful. If you wish to know information about a member, you can click on "Member Profile" under their username.

    Note that we do not put a space before a question mark. Also, please don't make your own emoticons. If you wish to use one, click on the icon in the toolbar and find one you like.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
