I'll bet you never get a single thank you for all your thoughtful efforts. What I've done with this kind of rascal is answer maybe 2 with links and leave a message like:
"If this helps let us know and we'll help you with the others."

There are very few "thank you" posts, that's for sure. I am hoping over time that students learn that we will help them figure it all out, but won't do their work for them. If that message gets across, then I'm happy!!

To determine which sentence uses pronouns correctly, we need to analyze each sentence individually.

A. "Please give Paul and I your undivided attention."
In this sentence, the pronoun "I" is used incorrectly. When "I" is used as the object of a verb or preposition, it should be replaced with "me". Therefore, the correct sentence should be: "Please give Paul and me your undivided attention."

B. "Jacob and me are going to set a meeting date."
In this sentence, the pronoun "me" is used correctly. "Me" is the object of the verb "are going to set". Therefore, this sentence uses pronouns correctly.

C. "Carol told Sylvia and he the good news."
In this sentence, the pronoun "he" is used incorrectly. It should be replaced with "him" as it is the object of the verb "told". Therefore, the correct sentence should be: "Carol told Sylvia and him the good news."

D. "Send the package to Tanya and him."
In this sentence, the pronoun "him" is used correctly. "Him" is the object of the preposition "to". Therefore, this sentence uses pronouns correctly.

The correct sentence that uses pronouns correctly is B. "Jacob and me are going to set a meeting date."
