For a) you calculate the mol of 405g PCl3 and according the equation you calculate how much Chlorine and phosphorous you need. Then you calculate the 100g P4 and 100 l Cl2 and compare. Dont forget the stiochometric factors.
n =m/M, n = mass/ molar mass.
b) is the difference of the theoretic and practical value.
c) similar, practical value of producct divided by theoretisc value of product
d) similar calculation with new values
e) dito
