    Hello, can anyone help me understand the following sentences???

    a) New Zealand has many advantages over Australia, the main ones being that it's smaller and cooler. (What do the words in bold mean???)

    b) We'll have dinner at 8.00, shall we? (Why was "shall we" used instead of won't we???)

    c) In a C.V. there was the following information on Education. Please, help me understand what is in bold.
    Watford Grammar School
    8 GCSEs
    3 A- Levels

    Please, help me. Thanks.
