'I' is used as a subject so it will always come in the beginning of a sentence
whereas 'Me' is used as an object.
in this case,since 'my uncle' is the subject,'Me' is the right option.

Pavan Bhushan said: (Nov 5, 2013)  
Here an object must be used, so me is correct choice. I think myself also suits the blank, but it comes in an expression with emphasis.

Venugopal N said: (Jan 10, 2014)  
Here if we want to use me we need to use "to "also so better to use myself I think.

Varun said: (Aug 10, 2014)  
When there is a preposition then use object pronoun such as me, us?

Ambrose said: (Feb 25, 2015)  
My uncle decided to take my sister and me to the market is a better sentence.

Nishanthan said: (Jul 11, 2015)  
My uncle is an third person. If the same sentence is me and my sister is going to market means then the answer will be myself and my sister is going to market.

Pooja said: (Aug 4, 2015)  
I believe it should have been - my sister and me. That is more appropriate form.

Grammarian said: (Sep 6, 2015)  
Hey there! Grammarian here!

Main point: The question itself is wrong.

It should have been 'My uncle decided to take my sister and ... to the market'.

The appropriate answer is 'My uncle decided to take my sister and I to the market', who's smart now?

Jay said: (Sep 25, 2015)  
Whenever one is using them self as a object, it is used as "me" not "I".

Aakash said: (Jul 16, 2017)  
My Sister and I is the only correct sentence.

Annas said: (Mar 20, 2018)  
It's my sister and myself.

Aniket Raikar said: (Feb 19, 2020)  
Here the first person 'my uncle' decided to take another person that is 'me' only not 'myself'.

Reem said: (Oct 21, 2020)  
Even though I know that the answer here is "me". I think the sentence is incorrect.

A basic rule of the English language is to always include yourself as the last person. So the sentence should be.

"My uncle decided to take my sister and I to the market".

Ayush said: (Sep 4, 2021)  
I think it should be "My sister and I".

Rajesh Ladhe said: (Dec 8, 2021)  
Me is used as an object. (Ex: The songs are written by me. ).

"Myself" is a reflexive pronoun used when you are the object of your own action.
