    Nominative (Subject) pronouns:
    I, he, she, they

    Objective pronouns:
    me, him, her, them

    A very simple way to determine which pronoun is used is to simply remove the other name and "and/or."

    Example:
    The postal worker delivered a package for . . . she/ her.

    What do you think the others are?

    The last sentence is tricky. Since "was" is a linking verb, the pronoun following it must be a nominative pronoun.

    I'll be glad to check your answers.
