1.)
Charge Q = 1020 C
time t = 5.5 min = 5.5*60 = 330 sec
Because, current
I = Q/t = 1020/330 = 3.09 == 3.1 Ampere --Answer

2.)
Electric current I = 3.50 A
Charge Q = 67 C
Therefore, time
t = Q/I = 67/3.5 = 19.14 sec --Answer

3.)
Resistance R = 220 ohm
current I = 3.50 A
Potential difference V = I*R = ...
