HI, [Pls rate if Helps]

Answers: (for the questions)

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. Class A is recommended if your Network & Host is more

4/5. Since, your requirement will grow in future - planning for Class A is a better idea

6.You need to have dedicated DHCP server for handling the Load

At last, your network will be best only depends upon how you Subnet without wating the IP Ranges.
