1 ia D.
"to whomever" is correct only if "whomever" is an object, but in this case the entire clause is the object of "to." "It should be "whoever" because that word is the SUBJECT of the verb "is chosen."
2. I think you're guessing!
3. Correct, it's C.

so #1 is D?
I'm not guessing, just thought that was the answer. # 2 has to be D then?

Yes, it's D.
