Answers and Explanations

1. You and he disagree about everything.

A pronoun takes the subjective case when it is the subject of the sentence. (Writers may be inclined to use "him," but if you omit "You and," the correct answer becomes clear.)

2. The doctor will speak with him in a moment.

A pronoun takes the objective case when it is the direct object of the subject.

3. Give him your extra copies.

A pronoun takes the objective case when it is the indirect object of the subject.

4. The team members who have shown the most improvement are you and he.

A pronoun takes the subjective case when it is a predicate noun, immediately following the main verb.

5. Send a message to him.

A pronoun takes the objective case when it is the object of a preposition.
