Other questions about "Textbook"

Q: In my textbook, there is a question. "My mother (1 has worked / 2 worked) at a hospital after she graduated from a nursing school."

The correct answer is 2, but I chose 1.
I wonder why 1 is not correct.
A: It's hard to explain. I think it's just a grammatical rule.

"Has worked" implies she continued to work for an undetermined time.

If the sentence said, "my mother has worked at a hospital since graduating from a nursing school", it means she still is working at the hospital. "My mother had worked at a hospital after she graduated from a nursing school" is also ok, but it means she doesn't work at the hospital anymore.

I think you could also say, "my mother has been working at a hospital since she graduated from nursing school."

The mixing of "has" + "past perfect verb" and "past perfect verb" doesn't work, for some reason. It's just a grammatical mystery.
Q: From my textbook.

5. After the way he behaved at the party, I wish I ……………….. him.

a) had never invited
b) didn’t invite
c) wouldn’t invite

The answer is a).
At first I chose b) and I understood why a) was correct answer but I have a another question. Can I rephrase "I wish I had never invited him." into "I shouldn't have invited him."?
A: And honestly if you are speaking b) would work just as well but when writing it doesn't look as good as a)
Q: This is from my textbook.
1. She goes to church regularly.
Don't I need "a" or "the" before "church"? Why?
A: No, because "church" is an activity in this sentence, not just a place
Q: I learned from my textbook that "no more than" meant "only", but I think, in the following picture, "no more than two" means "two or less". Which of the textbook and the sentence on the paper towel holder is wrong?
A: They are both right, to a degree. The text on the paper towel dispenser could have "take only two towels", which, though technically not right, would be understood to mean "only 1 or 2".

If you write "Take only up to two", it would be correct.

So, your textbook is not 100% correct.

◯ I can stay here no more than 5 days.
5日間以下。 (no more than 5 days = 5 days or less)
◯ I can stay here only 5 days.
5日間だけ (「本当はもっと長くいたいけど」の気持ちを表す)

Similar. Technically "only" is incorrect:
△ You can have only 5 beers a day.
◯ You can have up to 5 beers a day.
If you say "you can have only 5 beers", and someone drinks 4 beers, then they have violated your rules, since they did not have 5. But most people would understand the intention of "only 5 beers (or less)".
Q: There are as many textbooks that omit it as a type of movement as included.

What's the meaning of "as included" here?
A: It should be "as that includes it."

I will reword the sentence and tell me if you understand.

"The amount of textbooks that omit it as a type of moment is equal to the amount of textbooks that include it."
