    b) - It is (or was) I who broke the vase.

    I was always taught to imagine it as a question and an answer:

    Q - Who broke the vase?
    A - I did.

    The answer would never be "Me did", therefore you would use I not me.

    I agree totally (nominative case: "I") HOWEVER, with AmE you will hear "It was me" most frequently.
