@Alenanno: Me is informal in this case ... – Akram Shahda Jul 6 '11 at 8:30
@Homam: check out these excellently informative answers by an actual linguist: one, two, three. – RegDwigнt Jul 6 '11 at 9:03
@Akram: first of all, me is extremely widespread even in formal contexts. Secondly and most importantly, "informal" is not "wrong", contrary to what you suggest in your answer. – RegDwigнt Jul 6 '11 at 9:10
@Reg: Thanks for confirmation. I wasn't sure, but I didn't find it "wrong" to say "Me." if a professor calls you for example or in some business meeting (if you can consider them formal contexts). – Alenanno Jul 6 '11 at 9:57

The right answer is I. From I did.

Sorry, this is wrong. The unmarked form for pronouns in English is the objective, not the nominative one. This has been discussed over and over and over and over again. – RegDwigнt Jul 6 '11 at 9:06
