    A)My brother knows more about technology than me.
    b)My brother knows more about technology than I.
    B is correct answer why?
    The implied phrase is "than I do.

    A)Please send an invitation to Bob and she.
    B)Please send an invitation to Bob and her.
    B is correct answer why?
    "Bob and her" are objects of the preposition "to," so "her" needs to be in the objective case.

    A)My best friend and I are going to Hawaii this summer.
    B)My best friend and me are going to Hawaii this summer.
    A is correct answer why?
    "friend and I" are the subjects of the verb "are going." Therefore, "I" must be in the subjective case.
