Subjective Personal Pronoun

The subjective personal pronouns are I, you, she, he, it, we, you and they.

These pronouns can be used as the subject of a verb

Examples:

We bought a pound of apples. ("We" - subject of the verb "bought")
I decided to row to the island. ("I" - subject of the verb "decided") Objective personal pronouns, on the other hand, cannot be used as the subject of a verb.

Examples:

Us bought a pound of apples. (nonsense)
Me decided to row to the island. (nonsense)

Interactive example:
 
It is a gift from Claire and me. [show me the subjective personal pronoun]
