?`s and ANNEswers

I am trying to find out which is right. He did that for “you and I” or He did that for “you and me” One person says that if you put “you” first then it is you and I. They say that if you put me first it is me and you. The other says it is you and me no matter which goes first. Please help.

‘He did that for you and me.’ is the correct answer. This may be more technical than your friends’ explanations, but the reason is that the word ‘for’, which is a preposition, requires an objective pronoun. ‘Me’ is such a pronoun, while ‘I’ is a subjective pronoun. You would use the latter in such sentences as ‘You and I were the beneficiaries of what he did.’
