    1. A
    2. Yes.
    3. Rephrase the question. (Say, "Is the sentence correct?") (The answer to the question is, "Yes".)

    Hm. Well, to me go on working would mean to continue working, while go on with your work would mean to resume working after a break.

    It varies. Some are happy with cold cereal and coffee. Or cold cereal and orange juice. Some have eggs and toast. Or eggs and bacon and toast. Some people (especially in the South) have grits with their breakfast. Some people eat pancakes with syrup on them, but that is not the kind of thing one usually has every day.

    :D
