I would request some of our experts to enable me develop a clear understanding as where to use me and where to use I.
Both of these are pronouns in apposition.
It's often confusing as to which one is to be used where.

I is a subject pronoun while me is an object pronoun. Hence, the usage depends on whether the intent is to use a pronoun as a subject or as an object.

Having said that, chances are minimal that you would specifically be tested on I vs me, since almost all sentences on GMAT are in third person (they, them, he, she etc).

Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses Subject and Object pronouns, their application and examples in significant detail. If you or someone is interested, PM me your email-id; I can mail the corresponding section.

Hello, Prithwish093, and welcome to the forum. I agree with what has been written above. You may find this Business Insider article on the subject to be useful. And since another newcomer posted a query about who versus whom recently, it seems fitting to kill two birds with one stone and mention that that split involves a similar subject/object line of reasoning. To summarize,

SubjectI, who

Objectme, whom

Provided you can identify which type of pronoun is needed, you can coast through just about any such split on the GMAT™ or elsewhere. Good luck with your studies.
