Have you looked up the word "responsibility?" Here are some definitions that might be useful:

1.Having an obligation to do something, or having control over or care for someone, as part of one's job or role.
2.being the primary cause of something and so able to be blamed or credited for it.
3.(of a job or position) involving important duties, independent decision-making, or control over others.

How do these definitions relate (or not relate) to Scrooge and the Christmas Carol as a whole? who do you think is responsible for who in life (such as in families and in society)? Who decides who is responsibility, what different types of responsibility are there and what is the effect of people feeling responsibility as opposed to not feeling responsibility for certain things in life? how does this tie in to other feelings like blame, being caring toward others, and the common theme in Dickens' work of the natural inequalities/hierarchies that exist in society and life and how to make conscious changes for the better.

Aaaah, that brings me back -_-

You coukl say tha Fezziwig takes responsibility when he invites all his employees in a grand feast.

For the second question, think about when Scrooge actullay takes responsibility e.g. at the end when he changes from a stingy to a moral man. Takes respnsibility for Bob, especially in the predicament he is in
