1. Net

2. In an inelastic collision only momentum of the system remain conserved. Some energy is always lost in the form of heat, sound etc.

Before collision net momentum of the system was zero. No external force is acting on the system. Hence momentum after collision should also be zero. A has come to rest. Therefore B and C should have equal and opposite momentum or velocity of C should be V in opposite direction of velocity of B.
