    Why her? or Why she?

    Hi there... I know that doubt must be silly but I just got confused when a student of mine asked me that one... Would anyone help me?

    Re: Why her? or Why she?

    I don't understand your question. As a teacher of English, you know how we use these words, so what is the problem?

    What's your question exactly? Perhaps you have a problem with this:

    Mr. Jackson: I asked Mary to buy the tickets?
    Mrs. Jackson: why she (or her??) and not Robert?

    Am I right or ... ??

    By the way, welcome board corcove!
