Sentence: "You have earned a better score than I have". Is this a possible alternate correct answer for this sentence: "You have earned a better score than me".

Hi piyush_89,

All of the following 3 are correct. But the third one is best because it uses less words.

You have earned a better score than I have earned
You have earned a better score than I have
You have earned a better score than I

In the above sentence YOU is subject and that could be compared with a subjective pronoun only. Hence me (objective pronoun) is wrong and "I" (subjective pronoun) is correct.
