very cool that the root of "responsibility" is "response" and the root of "ansvar" is "svar". also, in serbian "odgovornost" (responsibility) from "odgovor" (response/answer) :D
It's so easy to confuse "ansvar" with English "answer"... :P
But if you're the one responsible, you are "answerable". ;D
Who's is not accepted?
"Who's" means "Who is". "Who is responsibility is it?" isn't really a sentence.
I just looked this up and it looks like I'm mis-using "Who's" where I should be writing "Whose". Thanks for the comment :)
I now realize that I have been doing this for years :O
Sparks_00, "who's" is who is. Say to yourself who is, if it doesn't fit then use whose
Tried "Who is responsible". Misstake
While they're the same overall message, those two are different sentences. The Swedish translation to your sentence is "Vem är ansvarig?".
Would "Who is responsible for it?" be acceptable too? The answer to both questions would be a person.
The answer to the questions would be the same, but that doesn't mean they're the same sentence grammatically speaking. Your sentence backtranslates into Swedish as "Vem är ansvarig för det?"
Sort of related catchy punk song
