    Re: correct grammer

    Hello Unreg,

    #1 is the usual version, in standard (British) English; #2 is less common, but is also fine.

    You may also hear/see "...heavier than she is".

    All the best,

    MrP

    Hello Mr. P and Un-R,
    #2 is standard NAE, especially in a formal or test context; in fact, you must answer with the subject pronoun (she) in TOEFL, TOEIC etc...
    #1 is common in spoken NAE
