Hi,

1. It was you the one who posted it and (it was) me the one who answered.
2. It was you the one who posted it and (it was) I the one who answered.


Is there at least one correct sentence, or is the underlined structure completely unnatural in English?

Istinctively, I wrote "me" [url=http://www.EnglishForward.com/English/AdvancedAZOfGirlsNames/12/vpndk/Post.htm ](here)[/url], then I started thinking that, as a subject, it probably should be "I" and felt a bit confused.
Google didn't help me, since there are very few hits, and not all of them are relevant.

Thank you in advance!

It was you that posted it and I was the one who answered.

It was you that posted it and the one that answered it was me.

Second sentence here is a bit unnatural.

Actually, they're both a bit of a mess, Tanit. If you overhaul your sentences, the problem disappears:

You were the one who posted it and I was the one who answered.

Thanks, MM and Vorpar, that was helpful!
Mister MicawberActually, they're both a bit of a mess, Tanit.
Yeah, I realised that when I saw the result of my Google search!
I guess all those sentences were written by Italians Emotion: smile
So, I should rewrite the sentence as:

a. You were the one who posted it and I was the one who answered.

or:

b. It was you that posted it and I was the one who answered.

From sentence b. (Vorpar's one), I understand that I am allowed to use one cleft sentence.
One follow-up question: can I also say:

c. It was you the one who posted it and I was the one who answered.

Second follow-up question: apart from the sentence I wrote in the original post, would "It was I/me the one who ... " ever be possible or is it always wrong?

It was I/me the one who
Not possible, Tanit.
