(c9) is the proper category for requesting work authorization based on a pending adjustment petition. You have quite a few questions about the form. It would be best to consult with a competent attorney or BIA-accredited representative to make sure the petition is filed correctly.

This answer should not be construed as legal advice and should not be relied on to take any action whatsoever; neither does it create a lawyer-client relationship.
I usually file the paper form, so I can't recommend E-filing unless you have a deadline and need to file quickly. If you have a pending I-485, then your answer for eligibility sounds right. Current immigration status could also be answered as applicant for adjustment of status.
I agree with my colleagues c (9) is the right category. From your information it seems your adjustment of status has been pending for a couple of years, I suggest you contact an Immigration Attorney to review your application and make sure that you are actually eligible to adjust status.
