No, this does not work. chain is limited to SecRule.

I believe, what you want is:

SecRule REQUEST_URI "..." "phase:1,...,ctl:ruleRemoveTargetById=981317;REQUEST_COOKIES:/^VarQuestion/,ctl:ruleRemoveTargetById=981257;..."

I have not tried this out myself. But this is the basic pattern, I would

What I am not sure is if you really want to limit the ignoring of the
said cookies to a certain path. This implies you want to check
these cookies for other paths as well. Would not it be simplet to
use SecRuleUpdateTargetById without path restriction and ignore 
the cookies site-wide?

Likewise, my regex pattern assumes, VarQuestion_... brings only
numbers as suffix. And as this should cover all of them, I think
the simpler and faster regex pattern is good enough.

I have something in mind, that there is an issue with the +. Maybe you
want to try *. What certainly does not work is (a|b) patterns. Do not
know why.
