Well, lets see.  Letter C is a zipper foot.  You can put it on the bar that holds the feet so it is on either side of the arm, for sewing either side of the zipper.  I use mine for when I have to sew close to anything really.

I think D is for doing rolled hems.  I can't quite tell from here tho.  If it is a rolled hem foot, then you would feed the chiffon (for example) through the mettal spiral.  That starts the roll.  I think you have to set the stitch to zig zag for it to work right.

B might be a type of darning foot?  Mine is plastic and see through tho.  So this might be for stitching a ribbon down to a dress?  Thgere is space in the slot for it to be set to a decritive stitch it looks like to me.

You might try finding a web site for your make and see if they have manuals that might explain some of their feet

yeah i have a singer and on their website i didn't see any presser feet that looked like these...

what you said did help though, now i have an idea of where to start looking on this page http://www.singerco.com/support/presser_help.html bc it doesn't show pictures of the feet on the list

It doesn't have any hooks or anything... but the blue part is a rubbery piece that i can actually remove.

Yeah, my bet is A is for sewing on buttons.  The rubbery stuff would be to help hold the button in place.  You would want to drop the feed dogs (or cover them) and have it on zigzag.
