Solution Preview

Use the standard approach and select the appropriate coordinates. See attached for solution including diagrams.

a) Since a link is a rigid body, the robot contains four links (base, L-shape arm, circular rotator, tool). A joint connects two links together. Then, the number of joints is three. And the robot is three-axis.
Following the Denavit-Hartenberg algorithm, the link coordinate diagram can be drawn as

The coordinate subscript 2 coincides with the coordinate subscript 1.
And the parameters can be found as
l(cm) d(cm) (degree) ...
