    About the first question, I did some reading on wikipedia and it says that the flagellated sperm need water to swim to the egg. So I have no idea whether they would go dormant and wait for better times or not, but they definitely would not be able to swim to the egg. C I bet.

    I think gametophytes grow from sporophytes so probably B.
