Normal INR should be 1-1.5

It has many uses, it correlates with the TP, so it should be abnormal in anything that prolongs TP.

For Atrial fibrillation prophylaxis it should be in the 2.0-3.0 range
For Heart valve it changes according to the type, iirc, but 2.5-3.5 is a safe number to memorize.

It can also be used as a rudimentary way to 'know' liver function in cirrotic patients.

I dont have a Uworld account right now, so cant help with the second question
