    decision

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-The decision is yours to stay or to leave.
    2-The decision is yours to stay.
    3-The responsibility is yours to stay or to leave.

    #1 and #2 sounds OK to me.
    #3 lacks logic. If both options are considered responsible then there should be no mention about choices at all.

    You can say, though:

    You have to find out for yourself if staying or leaving is a responsible choice.
    You have a choice: either stay or leave.
