Doubt on Subject-object pronouns [#permalink] New post 09 Apr 2013, 08:12
I was studying from the Manhattan GMAT SC guide , i have a doubt in the following sentence:

"You are more interesting that he" is said to be the correct comparative form. My doubt is - he is subject pronoun. But in this sentence it is the object. Shouldn't it have been "you are more interesting that him"

Hoping someone can shed some light on this doubt

thanks in advance

When 'to be' is the main verb, it is equivalent to '='

to be -> am, is, are, was , were

He is my brother. (He = my brother)
'my brother' is not the object here. When 'to be' is the main verb, it takes a complement since it refers to the same person as the subject (or compares to the subject as in this case). If the complement is a pronoun, it is a subject pronoun.
