I received a private message for the idiom case where we say "responsibility of" as opposed to "responsibility to"/"responsibility for"
As we know, "responsibility for" is best followed by a noun phrase.
"responsibility for [x]" -- where [x] is a noun phrase.

I have the responsibility OF an adult -- OK, used as comparison here.
These are OK. All followed by actions demonstration "responsibility".
I have the responsibility OF handling the environment.
I have the responsibility OF governing the public.
I have the responsibility OF taking care of my family.
I have the responsibility OF the regulation of -- "for" would be better here. I have the responsibility for the regulation of X. This fits responsibility FOR [noun]. Too many "of"s in a row can make the sentence convoluted and would not be preferred on the test.
