usage of the word "of"


Students lack of ownership of responsibility - Is the sentense right?

See example:

Motivation and Desire is an important key for student to succeed.

There is no need to capitalize desire. Your subject is plural, so the verb, are, and the nominative, keys, should be plural. You should have either 'a student' or 'students'.


Motivation and desire are important keys for a student to succeed.


Another way to write this using 'key' as an adjective is:

Motivation and desire are key for a student to succeed.
