I got this from the Princeton Review book:

"He said that she was better than I".

The answer was (E), nothing was wrong w/ the sentence. I thought it should be "me" and not "I".

Can someone explain plz?

Change it to:
"He said that she was better than I was."
That's better than:
"He said that she was better than me was."

"I" isn't the direct object of the verb "was"

thus it can't be me

or you could look at it:

I, he said that she was better.
(implied "it was I" that he said she was better)
