    Because there is no 'a' before the blank, you have to choose "decisions".

    2. Partners share __responsibility__ for management and liability.
    In a sentence like this, the noncountable one is better.

    Thank for your answer.

    one last question,
    I'd like to know if it's correct to say "make a decision" in #1.

    Yes, it would be correct if the decision about time and capital is one interrelated decision.
