Thanx, Praetorian, though this one is perhaps the easieast of those you love to post in this forum. :lol:
I do not remember the rule in fact, there must be a certain rule for conditional sentences of this kind.

C is correct, for C uses a subject pronoun HE that is necessary for the verb TO BE.

It is she who calls me every evening
If I were he, I’d have to acknowledge it.

Object pronouns HIM/HER are used in the following constructions
(1) I will love no one but him
(2) A user may be sure that no one but him will have access to his files.
(3) He confirms that she is invisible to all but him.
(4) Her real name is unknown, to all but her.
(5) those who live may live not for themselves but for him

Thanx, Stolyar, you are right. I just forgot it. Will study hard all this grammar material on weekends. Too many mistakes. Trying to balance many things... 8-)

Stoylar, I thought that we should look to se who is doing the action to tell if SUBJECT or OBJECT pronoun must be used, am I correct?

In the sentence: "If I were he, IтАЩd have to acknowledge it"

"I" is doing the action, that is, "I" is the subject of the sentence.

Like for instance: "If I were an alien, I would be green and slobby"

In this case "alien" is not part of the subject, isn't it?


Help!!

Thanks

Martin.-

all my examples are from altavista.com
TO BE requires two subject pronouns if you want

he is he (NOT he is him)
he is not she (NOT he is not her)
I am not he (NOT I am not him)
He is not I, (NOT he is not me) (though some consider this use OK)
