1. - A, whom - subject
2. - A, since Due to is in choice a, i wouldn't touch and replace it with because of
3 - D, 'whoever' since it's an object

1. A - Try the question test 'Who did he bring into the venture - Them', so it is A.
2. E - Due to means "caused by". It should only be used if it can be substituted with "caused by"
3. D - Need the possesive form

doloris, Check your profile to make sure that 'Always allow HTML' is set to Yes
