    1.answerable or accountable, as for something within one's power, control, or management (often fol. by to or for): He is responsible to the president for his decisions.[source : dictionary.com]
    He is responsible for his own actions.

    2. He sent me a message. ,or
    He sent a message to me.

    3. The sample was prepared yesterday/two days ago / last year - finished action
    The sample has been prepared recently / this morning - recently finished action
    The sample had been prepared before we arrived.- past action previously finished before another action in the past. "Had been prepared" shows the fact that the sample was prepared before we arrived.

    I hope it helps you.
