Melanie , from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida asks...
Is it correct to say, "Are those they?" or is it "Are those them?"?
Anne answers...
"Are those they?" is correct. You could figure this out by answering the question. "Yes, they are." If you answered your second question, "Are those them?" you could see that one doesn't say correctly, "Yes, them are."
