Writing for business – I, myself

Margaret Rouse Margaret Rouse Profile: Margaret Rouse

decision.jpg Michael Dell and ________ are responsible for the decision. We will ask each employee to take an unpaid vacation this quarter.
a. myself
b. I

Answer: b

Explanation: Be alert to a tendency to use reflexive pronoun forms (ending in -self) where they are neither appropriate nor necessary. This sentence requires a subject pronoun. You wouldn’t say “Myself am responsible for the decision.”
