Brake Work

a) A leak will show in fluid loss.  Easy to spot.

b) Perhaps.  The servo can also be a problem.

c) No.  A bomb leak causes a _hard_ pedal.

Other possibilities are air (especially in the compensation valve below
the master cylinder - very few monkey lads bleed it - and failing
flexible hoses.  Get someone to press the brake while you hold each of
the flexible hoses.
