him
2. Often (he,his) feet froze in winter storms.

3. (They, Them) who lived on land could not understand his suffering.
They
4. His courage should impress you and (I, me).
me
5. It was (he, him) who left the comfort of towns for the callenge of the sea.
he
6. His audience is you and (I, me).
I (I am still kind of confused on how you know when to use I instead of me.)
7. He gives (us, we) encouragement through his strength and faith.
us
8. The seafarer's spirit urges (he, him) to sail the oceans.

  3. Sorry about that..=( I was looking for underlining.

    6. His audience is you and (I, me).
    I (I am still kind of confused on how you know when to use I instead of me.)
    The clue here is the verb... "is" is a linking verb. That means that what is one side has to be equal to what is on the other side. So the predicate nominative is the same case as the subject. Audience is I. This can be reversed...I am audience.
    9. He and (us, we) are united through the spirit of his reflections.
    us
    You would not say "US are united. So this would be He and we are united.
