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.
