I'm sorry you don't know what a school subject is.

A.
Expansion work (or PV work) is
work = p(v finalv initial)
If p is zero, the PV work must be zero since any number x zero is zero.
B. Substitute the numbers into p(v final  v initial). p is 1.5 for B and 2.8 for C.
Delta V is 89.3  26.7 = ? mL and change that to L.
Work has units of L*atm. Change to joules by L*atm x 101.325 J/atm = ? J
