For part b, how do I know which equations to use? I know it has to be equations 2 for the hydrogen electrode (as there's hydrogen gas in the reaction) but I'm not sure whether it would be 4 or 5 for the oxygen electrode (I think it's 4 since it has OH- in it which is necessary for "alkaline conditions" I think)

Since 5 uses H+ which aren't too plentiful in an alkaline cell.
