______ and _____ have been to class.

a) He, me
b) He, I
c) Him, I

I chose a)He and me
but a friend told me she thinks
c)Him and I sounds better.

Now I'm doubting myself...

    Nope, neither is correct. Sorry!!

    He and I -- they are both pronouns that can be used as subjects. (Him and me are pronouns that can be used only as objects.)

    One way to truly hear the correct pronoun is to try saying the sentence with only one of the pronouns at a time.

    Would you say, "Me has been to class" or "Him has been to class"?

    and
    http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/cases.htm (Again, scroll down and read about personal pronouns.)

    "try saying the sentence with only one of the pronouns at a time."

    Best tip ever!! : )

    This is a difficult lesson for many English speakers! You'll hear the errors all the time, in casual speech and on TV and just about everywhere. If you can learn it now and practice it always, you'll be ahead of the "game"!!
