Question: All of (we, us) boy scouts are going camping this weekend.

Hi All,

My questions: Why are we not using "we" here, since it seems like a subject pronoun and the plural form (as mentioned in the GmatClub Ultimate Grammar book - Page 62) is "we".

"We" is subject whereas "us" is object. All of we boy scouts are going camping this weekend. just sounds horrible. "we" cannot be used as the object.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.

Thanks for your prompt response.

Please correct me if I am mistaken:
Subject: All
Prepositional phrase: of us boy scouts
noun phrase: us boy scouts; which is also the object
verb: are going camping
modifier: this weekend.

I'm not very sure but I think

Subject : All of us (The entire phrase is the subject)
Appositive: boy scouts
Verb : are going camping
Modifier: this weekend.

This is just my opinion. An expert's advice would throw better light.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.
