    were - was - be

    Are they all correct? If they are not, could you explain why.

    1) It's time you are able to take full responsability for your own actions.
    2) It's time you were able to take full responsability for your own actions.
    3) It's time you be able to take full responsability for your own actions.

    I would use only #2, the subjunctive form that is generally used after "it's time."
