The post by chetan2u just above yours explains your query.

hi sayantan / chetan,

I read all the posts above, but I still have this query - responsible to (someone) and responsible for (something) are always correct?

I am not sure if this sentence is correct as it sounds awkward to me: The manager is responsible to seven entry level employees

Also, can you help with the list of such idioms?

regards,
shailabh

The difference is about the meaning, not whether the object of preposition is a person or thing. You may be responsible FOR something or someone, but you may be responsible TO someone only.

The sentence you mentioned is wrong. The correct sentence could be:
The manager is responsible for seven entry level employees.
OR
The manager is responsible for taking care of the seven entry level employees.

I do not agree with you. The first Sentence A - Defines the Original meaning if there is no grammatical error and redundancy in it.

sayantanc2k wrote:
In context of loan, it is practically sensible to consider that the repayment of the loan is the only responsibility of the spouse of the defaulter. Technically there could be other responsibilities, but probably the author of this question is not quite wrong in ignoring them. Consider the following sentences:

" If my father does not pay the loan, I shall have responsibilities that include paying the balance."
" If my father does not pay the loan, I shall be responsible for paying the loan."

In my view, the first sentence, although grammatically correct, is awkward and does not convey the intended the meaning as the second sentence does.



So, here are my issues:
1. We cannot eliminate option A because of a meaning change. Grammar can be a factor, so can be redundancy and illogical meaning, but not the change in meaning.

2. In the explanation of example you quoted, calling it awkward is awkward in itself. Even though OG loves the word Awkward, I'm afraid we need more than that as a solution and this is the Primary Reason why these forums came into existence. So, please explain the awkward thing in A.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. response A has a different meaning that other sentences, which is why A should be kept.
