Please help me out with the use of pronouns (they/them) in the following sentences

1. We scored as many goals as they (they/them).
2.Can you sing as well as them (they/them)???
3.None so blind as they (they/them) that will not see .
4.It isn't for such as they (they/them) to dictate to us.

my answers are underlined but i am not sure of them . if they're wrong please correct them with their explanations....

Tim NewPronouns after "as" or "than" may be subjective or objective depending on the implied elements that are missing.

We scored as many goals as they scored.
But if you take the verb away, I doubt anyone would ever say "We scored as many goals as they", right? Can you sing as well as they... sing? You need "sing" if you use the subject pronoun, I guess.

Hi,

Can you help me, please?

Finally, I ask for what it means by “special car lights”? Could you tell me how they/them look like? Do they/them have a special color or are they/them stronger than the standard car lights?

Finally, I want to ask what "special car lights” means. Could you tell me what they look like? Do they have a special color or are they stronger than the standard car lights?

They is the subjective pronoun while them is the objective.  In your example sentences you have implied elements and depending upon intent your choice of pronoun may change.  Your confusion arises from the use of "as" with a pronoun.  Pronouns after "as" or "than" may be subjective or objective depending on the implied elements that are missing.

We scored as many goals as they scored.

Can you sing as well as they sing?

None are so blind as they that will not see.

It isn't for such as them to dictate to us.   

If a verb completes the thought (it is the implied element that is missing) than you use the subjective pronoun.

Just remember this rule. With modal in the construction (Can, should, will, do , did, etc) only the subject form of the pronoun is allowed. i.e.
Can they them finish the renovation work before Friday ?
Will he him be able to come to the party?
Do they them live close by you?
