Of the following, which element has the highest first ionization energy?

d is right for the second one because Cl wants to gain an electron not loose one

My guess would be c also for the first one just because Na, K, Rb all have similar chemistry and Li always is just weird for a alkali metal. But I cannot be entirely sure.
