    I think any of the three could be used, but D is the most expressive.

    Both seem to fit.

    3. -----Alice is visiting her mother today.
    -----In that case,____ you have dinner with us?
    A. will B. can C. won't D. can't

    The suggested answer is C, why A is not right?
    It is a politer way of asking. A could be used.
