Whoops my question got cut off... personne ne soit capable de se passer de son portable. Why use subjunctive?
This relates to:Personne ne ..., rien ne ... = No one, nothing (negation) -
Kwiziq language super star
What is the verb that precedes ...personne... as it is probably the reason why the subjunctive is used?

"Il semberait que, personne ne soit capable de se passer de son portable"
So, it's the il semblerait que that makes the following verb subjunctive, yes? Thank you!
Yes Victoria, as I suspected to indicate the doubt.
Il semblerait que ...= it would seem that...
Hope this helps!
