Agree with Paul.

Sujunctive part results in "were"

It should be "me"..'cos it acts like an object here..

I is used for subject.

It is a past counterfactual. Hence the answer is D

Pals, B or D seems correct. Though my limited ken drives me to D. I really wanna know Subjunctive mood usage as B also seems a correct use of Subjunctive mood.

Can any generous soul please enumerate the particular usage of SUBJUNCTIVE MOOD ?

After speaking to a few GMAT instructors, I found out the the verb "to be" holds an exception in the conditional -> the object becomes the subject...example:

It is I at the door.
If she were he, she would have won the game.
If she were I, she would have won the race.

This is never heard in spoken English..yet another GMAT gem
