(a) The magnetic field at P and Q is the same, because the magnetic field lines inside the helical coil of wire which behaves like a solenoid is uniform/in the form of parallel straight lines.

(b) increasing/decreasing the number of turn in the coil  

increasing/decreasing the current through the coil
