    Usage of one's

    Sponsored Ad:
    One should be responsible for one's own actions

    or

    One should be responsible for his own actions

    I am a bit confused here. I have searched the internet and have found that both are acceptable in American and Britich English, though one's is more formal. BUt what does GMAT say?

    Even I am not sure, but certainly this is not wrong: One should be responsible for his/her own actions.

    I think
    'one should be responsible for one's own actions' - correct.

    'one should be responsible for his own actions' - incorrect.
    the correct sentence should read 'one should be responsible for his or her own actions'.
