I just went through your query i dont know where u went for interview and at what post but there is nothing unusual in these questions as they can be answered . There are more complex question that can be asked and some i have faced anyways i would like to try to answer some of these
2) A person can be analysed on the basis of his behaviour, gestures, posture in an interview for example if a he is not maintaining eye contact and thinks a lot while giving answer it means he is a confused person who lacks confidence. For analysing resume first of all the career objective mention should be analysed then one should analyse the experience person had such as the time period person has worked in different industry, whether he has worked for suitable time period or frequently switched his job if he has switched job at very short period may be he easily gets bored and is job hopper , if he is not experienced project work can be analysed etc
3) education should match to job applied for, experience if fresher then project works, achievements, references
4)questions to be asked in interview depends upon the job one is taking interview for if job is of sales question that analyse persons presentation skills, problem solving skills and communication skills should be asked
5) stability can be analysed by seeing his past records more information can be gathered by reference given if doubt is there can be appointed on probation first
hope i am able to give somewhat satisfactory answer if any thing is wrong kindly correct me
