I agree with your first two answers. I haven't read this specific story, but I doubt if the other two answers are right.
You're looking for external conflict and setting for these last two questions.

Should #7 be D?

Yes, I think 7 is d because it's the only one describing a setting and also shows his competitive spirit.
