    Question The use of "OF" and "FOR"?

    Need help in this...


    In the dormitory, your mother-sister reminds you and your dorm mates to be responsible in all your actions, how should she say it?

    a.) You are mature enough, so you should be responsible of yourselves
    b.) You are mature enough, so you should be responsible for yourselves


    Include this one too

    My bother, sunny, looks taller than ___________.
    a.) I
    b.) me



    I would really appreciate if your answer would be supported with correct grammar rules.
    Thank you, would be waiting for your answer/s.

    Re: The use of "OF" and "FOR"?

    My bother, sunny, looks taller than ___________.
    a.) I
    b.) me
    Traditionalists argue that than I is correct. Than me is much more common, but both are possible.

    NOT A TEACHER

    You can also say, 'My brother is taller than I am' which is more common than 'My brother is taller than I.'
