Is in responses to a correct usage? I use in response to when the amount of subjects is one and in responses to when the amount of subjects is more than one. For example:

In response to A, B does...
In responses to A, B and C do...

Or should it be:

In response to A, B does one thing.
In responses to A, B does two things.

Which usage is correct?

How many responses do you compose? One, so you must write all the time in response to.
