    (a) never at.
    (b) it would be 'in the afternoon'.
    (c) If you use the plural, it changes the meaning from an implied 'this afternoon', to all/most afternoons.
    (d) You would usually say 'most afternoons'.

    I believe that many people do not use a preposition:

    "I am very happy to help you. I am available afternoonS." (The plural of "afternoon" is necessary.)

    If you wish to use a preposition, then you might say:

    "I am available in the afternoon/ afternoons." (The plural is optional with a preposition.)
