Are these sentences correct:

1) I didn't think someone would risk their life to save that poor dog. But Tom did.
2) I didn't think anyone would risk their life to save that poor dog. But Tom did.


3) I didn't think someone would risk their life to save me. And nobody did.
4) I didn't think anyone would risk their life to save me. And nobody did.

Gratefully,
Navi.
