Or

3)-Thank you very much for accepting my request in taking care of my home during my absence.

The confusion is related to combining sentences with prepositional, participle or noun phrases. Either it should be in taking care...., for taking care...., or just taking care...?

which sentence example is grammatically correct and why others are not?

For non-natives like you and me, it is difficult to pick up a correct preposition. I understand!

Well, in such case, dictionaries are the only resort! The bothering verb here is 'request.' That's it. Jump on to the dictionary and check which preposition that verb has taken in the entries.

Cambridge is what I prefer because the bold prepositions! The verb 'request' takes for, to, at, and on.

Check what suits in your example. It is to.

Thank you very much for accepting my request in to take care of my home during my absence.
