for first one, I will pick A. She likes him better than (she likes ) me. Compare objects.

for second one, I will pick A. He has better friends than I (do). Compare subjects.

We also want to be careful in a sentence such as "I like him better than she/her." The "she" would mean that you like this person better than she likes him; the "her" would mean that you like this male person better than you like that female person. (To avoid ambiguity and the slippery use of than, we could write "I like him better than she does" or "I like him better than I like her.")

I(a) She likes him better than me
(b) She likes him better than I

I think both are correct or both are incomplete. Depending upon the usage in sentence. See my explanation above.

II (a)He has better friends than I
(b)He has better friends than me.

Certainly A. He has better friends than I (do) . Subjects are compared here.
