1. You didn't list any choices but here is how you work the problem
heat lost by metal + heat gained by water = 0

[mass metal x specific heat metal x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] + [mass H2O x specific heat H2O x (Tfinal-Tinitial)] = 0
Substitute and solve for specific heat of the metal. Compare specific heats to determine the identify of the metal.
