    the delay in responding

    I write a sentence: I am sorry for the delay in responding.

    I know I can use " the delay in responding", but can I say "my delay in response" or "the delay in my response"?

    Please help, thanks.

    "the delay in my response" - yes.

    "my delay in response" - no.

    I apologise for the delay in responding.
    I am sorry for the delay in my response.
    I apologise for not having responded sooner.
    I am sorry for not responding sooner.
