    As for the first task, at first I thought that "5. She wouldn't sit up by the window waiting for her son." is the right variant. However, then I decided that it is a habitual action in the past with a negative meaning, isn't it?

    It could refer to a past situation - When her husband was at home, she wouldn't sit by the window waiting for her son, but when her husband was away she would sit in the window from dawn till dusk.

    It could also refer to a present characteristic: Polly sits there all day, pining. She's not like her mother - She (the mother) wouldn't sit by the window waiting for her son.She'd do something more positive.

    The test question is unsound.In the right context, all of the sentences could refer to the past.
