#2 is the grammatically correct one.

-----------------------------
Thank you.

Q1) Can we use "This is him." in a colloquial speech?

Q2)
3. I think the person to be he.
4. I think the person to be him.

(In this case, which one is correct?)

  • English -

    Q1) Although "This is him," is often used, it is still wrong. I would not say it is colloquial.

    Q2) Both are awkward, but 3 is correct. A better way is "I think the person is he."
