plural for personne...not plural for tout le monde?

Bonjour.  In the above examples, I see personne n'est heureux.  The lesson does not talk about plurality I do not think.

In the quiz, now I can't remember, but I may or may not have used a singular masculine word.  Do you have any extra information as plurality in this lesson?  Merci.

Hi robin, 

There is no plural for ‘rien’ , ‘personne’ , ‘tout le monde’ , you are probably thinking of words like aucun, certain which agree in gender and number  ? 

Quelqu’un however can become quelques-uns and in this case you could have a plural -

Quelques-uns vont venir vous voir = A few people are going to come to see you

Hope this helps!
