B , imo

it should be "responsible for" and there are more than two actions so "over another" should be used.

that clause is needed.

responsible to is required when you are responsible to a subject.

responsible for is required when you are responsible for some action. We need you use responsible for here.

Therefore, IMO B.

Irrespective of the correct answer, can someone please throw some light on what's the difference between A and B?


Responsible for is the correct idiom Hence D/E

he believed that

Govt mandated that

EPA requires that

Such words need that. Hence B/C/D

B is the only common

believe shud have 'that'

B. 'that' is needed and 'one' is redundant.

"that" is needed here for two reasons.
1. inclusion of "that" makes the first sentence clearer that Sartre is expressing his opinion about the individual rather that Sartre believing individuals.
2. inclusion of "that" makes the three that clauses parallel to each other.

so A and E are out.

C is a sentence fragment
between B and D, B is idiomatic as responsible for is a better choice, also one another in choice B looks better than one other.

B it is.

"believed" requires "that"

"responsible for" is the correct idiom.

IMO B...
"Responsible for" is the correct idiom..
Hence, you can refine your answers to B or E.
Believed that.. subjunctive mood.. Correct choice...

I have a question here.. If we use "believed that", shouldnt the first part of the sentence read "Sartre believed each individual is responsible .... ". I mean, if we are expressing it in the past using believed that, shoulnt we use "was" instead of "is" ?

After reporing verb believe, we need to use "that". Cross of A and E
Responsible for is the correct idiom, Cross off C and D

B stays - 35 secs :D
