Neha told Arun and me/I to go to work ?
can any one please explain?

OA - me
Neha told Arun and me/I to go to work.
In this sentence, the correct choice is “me”. If we break this sentence into two single sentences, they will read:
1. Neha told Arun to go to work.
2. Neha told me to go to work.
In the second sentence, we will not say Neha told I. Hence, “me” is the correct choice.
Now let’s consider this sentence structure from where the doubt must have arisen:
1. Neha is shorter than Arun (is).
2. Neha is shorter than I (am).
Here in sentence 2 use of “I” is correct because the way “is” is understood in sentence 1, similarly “am” can remain understood in the second.
Hope this helps.
