How can so many miss this simple question??? Just reverse - - "I am it."

houston

"Mother, it is I" not "Mother, it is me"
"It is just me" will work or "It was me" but not "It is me"

Vocal majority

99.99999% say 'It's me'. Anyone who says it's wrong is wrong.

A question of grammar vs. usage, isn't it? I'd never mark anybody down for this!

kimmikoto

haven't you ever heard of the most famous line ,'it's me, not you.'

Sumitra

Undo the contraction and compare the difference in judgment: It is I. vs Is is me.

Nothingduh

It is me is the common and popular usage now. Unless you're a grammar purist, it really shouldn't matter. For exams, it's best to just play it safe and use 'It is I'.

Correct and what sounds good are two different things. "I" is correct, but it sounds pretentious, so most people use "me."
