B uses 'chances', had it been 'chance', then B would have been the ideal choice.

We have one in a million chances to win the World Cup

We - have one chances (should be - chance) - to win the World Cup

'in a million' - prepositional phrase

It seems the answer should be 'None of the above'.

"chance of" is the correct idiomatic usage.
