Is the following a correct sentence:

Martha and him ate the sandwich.

  • Language Arts -

    No.

    The easiest way to see if it's correct is to drop the first two words.

    Would you say? Him ate the sandwich?

    Of course not. But you would say: He ate the sandwich.

    Therefore the correct sentence is:

    Martha and he ate the sandwich.

    Martha and he are the subjects. Since him is an object pronoun, we can't use it as a subject.
