    Here, sorry, I didn't even realise! http://prntscr.com/dsn2zb
    I've only glanced at it but M is in the wrong place on your diagram. M is the midpoint of AD.

    for question b i got the same answer as you so im not sure what i did wrong

    but for c, firstly m is the midpoint of ad not dc
    to work out the angle first we have to work out the length of at least two sides of the triangle agc
    so we have one given lenghth, gc which is 4cm, but we need to we need to work out the length of cm
    the triangle cmd makes a right angle which we can use to work out cm

    once youve worked that you you can use trigonmetry to work out the angle cmg
