As we know there are charge on spherical shell then electrical field inside the shell will be zero.

1) If there is no charge on the spherical shell, but has charge inside the shell then what is the electric field inside and outside the shell?

2) If there is charge on the spherical shell and also have charge inside the shell then what is the electric field inside and outside the shell?

Is this spherical shell a conductor and is it hollow or solid?

Do you have a text book that covers Gauss' law?

It's conductor and it is hollow.

Electric Field inside the spherical shell

What can you say about the distribution of the charge?

Gauss' law states that the flux through a gaussian surface is the net charge enclosed, over the permittivity of free space, what does that tell you about the field inside the sphere?
