  • He has finished his work.
  • She has done her duty.
  • You have done your duty
  • They have done there duty
  • We have done our duty.
Nominative pronoun should be in subjective form of verb like
  • I do my work.
  • She is doing her work
  • They are doing their work.
  • You are going there.
Compliment pronoun verb to be will  used as nominative form like
  • It is I who called you yesterday.
  • I is he who is joining you
  • If I were you , wouldn't do it.

If personal pronoun is a object of verb then it is used as a objective form (me,us,him,her, them)
  • I know him well.
  • She comes to me for advice.
  • Our client has told us about there requirement.
