    nobody

    my questinon is how "nobody" can be the subject of the sentence?

    subject is a person,animan or thing that can exert force.

    for example in this dialogue:

    -Who was knocking at the door?
    -Nobody was knocking at the door.

    You are confusing grammar and physics. Tina. Any noun can be the subject of a sentence.
