Can Tous as a pronoun be a standalone subject?

___ est bien qui finit bien (All's well that end's well)

Correct answer is Tout

Just clarification, Tout here means everything, that's why it is tout not tous? Can tout (as a pronuon) be used as a stand alone subject ?

Hi Charmond,

You are correct in thinking that 'tout' in 'tout est bien qui finit bien' means everything/all and in this sentence, it is the subject of 'est bien'.

Other examples might be -

Tout dépend de toi = Everything depends on you

Je t' ai tout dit I have told you everything

Vous avez compris? ---> oui, tout! Have you understood? -----> yes, everything!

Hope this helps!
