very good question. I fell for B because I didnt know the idioms.

The correct idioms are;

"responsible for" --> The termites were responsible for the damage
"responsibility to" --> It was his responsibility to take care of himself.

Hence D.

Its a statement referring to an act in the future so "is" present tense is ruled out

please elaborate why not E .. I reckon ... the use of word "will " is critical here ..

Will denotes a command / authority ....


am I correcr or is it the simple usage of future tense ??

if is simple if and then clause ...
if ... is ... then ... will....... not will have ....
for will have ... then there should be would in the if clause.

Re: SC QUESTION [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2010, 05:42
idiomatic
my answer is D

"responsible to" refers to people, e.g. The company should be responsible to its clients all the time.
"responsible for" refers to actions/things, e.g. Members who post questions on gmatclub are responsible for providing the official answers.
