Are both options grammatically correct? 家族の中で私が一番背が高いです。 私は家族の中で一番背が高いです。

1 Answer 1


Yes, all of the following are grammatical (yours are 1 and 3).

  1. 家族の中で私が一番背が高いです。
  2. 私が家族の中で一番背が高いです。
  3. 私は家族の中で一番背が高いです。
  4. 家族の中で私は一番背が高いです。

I don't feel any difference between 1 and 2, but 4 may be slightly less idiomatic than 3. A rough idea is that it's better to put the topic first.
