Problem Pronouns

I, We, He, She, They

Pronouns in the nominative (also called subjective) case—I, we, he, she, they— serve as subjects of verbs but never objects of verbs or prepositions. You can often tell that the wrong case is being used because the sentence sounds odd. However, when compound subjects or compound objects are used, it may be difficult to hear the correct case.

To TEST such an instance, drop the other subject or object and repeat the sentence with only the pronoun in question.
