Please answer these questions, but I do not really understand
  1. How to watch on the same network are A and B?
  2. How to know the router MAC R?

1) A and B are on different networks, this is indicated by the fact that they are in different vlnach.
2) do not quite understand the question. who owns R ?
3) sends arp request(" who here has ip address B")

1. Apply bitwise "And" to the subnet mask and IP A, and the subnet mask and IP B; compare the result. If the result is the same - A and B on the same network.
2. To send the broadcast ARP request with the appropriate question.
3. It you only know the IP B, and router is known for its routing table, which he guided with such issues.
