comment How can I get power to this garage?
They make cables and wires that are designed for this type of thing, so you'll not have to worry about conduit or anything to protect the cable/wires. Since I'm in the US, that's about all the useful information I can provide.

comment How can I get power to this garage?
Doesn't look that far. Depending on the size of wire being used, you might be able to string up an overhead cable without a messenger. Check with your local building department, they might have some documentation about how to safely feed a detached garage with an overhead feeder. You'll have to be concerned with clearances under and around the cable, support at each building, and possibly support of the cable itself. You'll likely also have to think about grounding and bonding of the second structure.

comment how many ring or radial socket makes a circuit
I don't think most folks consider receptacles "continuous" loads, so I can't understand why you'd only use 80% of the circuit.
