    Hello, in my opinion, in number 7, the word “everybody” refers to singular, so the answer should be “himself” not “themselves. Thanks, regards

      Everybody is considered a plural pronoun so you have to match it with another plural reflexive pronoun.

        Actually, this is interesting since “everybody/everyone/anybody/anyone” are used as singular pronouns when determining a verb (Ex: everybody IS going) but they do seem to be used as plural pronouns when determining a reflexive pronoun (Ex: everybody enjoyed THEMSELVES).
