Hello,

you are right.

If the subject is nobody, somebody, everybody, no one, someone or everyone, we use “they” in the tag question.
E.g.
Nobody asked for me, did they?
Nobody lives here, do they?

Regards

Thank you.

Then how to tag for everyone and someone? Are mine right?

1. Everyone can do that, can't they?
2. Somebody stole the product, didn't they?
