For (a), you can use
Electric force = Charge × Electric field strength
and for (d), it is just using the work done formula.

To a.)

As already answered, the Electric force depends on the charge of the particle and electric field within the two plates, so Electic force = charge x Electric field strength.

The Electric field strength in turn is dependend on the voltage within the plates of the capacitor and the distance of the plates themselve:

Electric field strength = Voltage / distance

to c.)

A charge that moves up and down expends potential energy in an electric field in the direction to point B:

W = Electric field * charge * length from A to B

as Electric field strength = Voltage / distance, the formula can be written:

W = (Voltage / distance) * charge * length from A to B

Ah ok, thank you so much!!
Does this mean that e) would just be work done from A->B + work done from B->C + work done from A->C?

It is the sum of work done, yes. It is electric force F = electric field * charge and electric field and electric field E = Voltage / distance. Note: the distance of the two plates!

the distances s are given in the sketch.
