Okay, in rereading this entire thread, let me point out that the only thing wrong with your first answer for #1 was the subject. The subject in that clause is ONE word. You posted two words for the subject, at first. Which ONE is the subject?

1-7 are correct. I'm bolding the parts of the other three to help you focus. 8. I wasn't the one to whom he called out. 9. Is Helen the one whom was chosen to be the counter? 10. Now we've lost track of whom goes next.
