between you and I or between you and me, Business writing, CIO, grammar, Quiz
Which is correct?
Between you and ___ claims of openness seem to suggest that there’s something to hide.
Between is a preposition and words following a preposition are in the objective case. Here are some examples: beside me, over him, to her. You’d never say “beside I,” “over he” or “to she.” I know you wouldn’t! Between you and me is a little trickier but it works the same way.
Between you and I is never correct, not even at the start of a sentence, because it’s still in the objective case.
