Mine vs. Me #2 (permalink) Fri Aug 11, 2006 7:12 am   Mine vs. Me
 

.
Me is the object pronoun; mine is the possessive pronoun.

The picture is mine = It is my picture.
The picture is me = I am the picture or I am in the picture
.

Since in the test question, flowers are in the picture, not a person, me is a wrong choice. Their and your are wrong also, but for a different reason: they are possessive adjectives, not pronouns. Theirs and yours would be correct choices.
