comment “ich” in different cases
@Cerberus I wouldn't say that it 'modifies' the subject. If you use "sein", it simply means equality "Ich = der Schönste". I also don't think it has to be the same gender: "Du bist das Beste, was mir je passiert ist", but also "Du bist der/die Beste". Furthermore, when you speak to a child, you can apply both "das" for "das Kind" or "der" or "die" for its actual gender: "Du bist der dümmste Junge/das dümmste Mädchen/das dümmste Kind" - "Du bist der/die dümmste von allen". In your last sentence you should, technically speaking, use "das"; but "die" is fine. – Anyway. "Ich" has no article.

comment “ich” in different cases
@Cerberus I disagree. The article "der/die/das" is associated with the substantive "Schönste". Compare: "(Die) Heidi[=Sie] ist die Schönste". "Sie" is just the replacement for the name (including a potential article). If the article would be applied to the pronoun, it would precede it immediately: *"Die sie ist die Schönste" (which is obviously wrong). Furthermore, where would the article be if there's no further substantive but an adjective?

If context is given, C is absolutely fine. Without context, you're right.

comment How to ask about another person's job
(e) and (g) have other meanings. (e) as it stands right now is pretty uncommon. It could be used in a sentence like "Wie arbeiten Sie unter Zeitdruck?", suggesting the question if someone is able to work without worry or haste, but though quickly and efficient when time is running out. - (g) asks if a job or task is interesting.
