Hi Friends can you clarify the below two sentences

He runs faster than (I / me).

He is older than (I/me)

I thought the answer for the two sentences is "me", however the answer is "I" for both the sentences.In Manhattan SC i read that when the pronoun is a part of object we should use "me" and not "I"...so friends can you please clarify how to use "Me" and "I".

Regards
Srinath

Try it this way (repeating the verb)...

He runs faster than (I / me) run.

He is older than (I / me) am.

Good Explanation but when to use "Me"?

It has been too long since I actually studied English to remember the rules, technical names, etc. This site explains it better than I could http://www.elearnenglishlanguage.com/difficulties/ime.html

He is older than I.
The pronoun following "is" must be in the same case as the noun or pronoun preceding "is"

We have to match the Case

Here he(subjective case) is the subject, so compared with I(Subjective Case)
