    Do we need a comma there?

    Please help me with these:

    1. He was clever enough ..............in this delicate situation.
    a. avoiding/speaking b. to avoid/to speak
    c. avoiding/to speak d. to avoid/speaking

    2. Seen from the hill the city looks magnificent.
    Do we need a comma before the word "the city"?

    Judging by the colour of the sun it should be windy tomorrow.
    Do we need a comma before the word "it"?
