I am much confused with the sentence formation like "it's I".I studied it in the same way but it is well discussed here on the forum and said to be it's us. What shall it be?
The linking verb 'to be' uses the nominative case on both sides of the verb.
It is I.
It is we.
It is they.
In casual conversation you will often hear "It's me", but this is technically wrong.
It may help to think of it like this:
It is I. [I am there].
Who did it?
It is they. [They did it].
