2) Which direction do the arrows go?
I come back to this, as you got excellent answers from Jim on your other question. I had forgotten about it after invesigating your model.
The arrows go from the depending object, e.g. a sketch, to the object they depend on, e.g. the man XY-plane.
If I investigate a model, I almost never look beyond the first error, but it is definitely a good idea to check the step directly prior to it. In your case that was the sketch which looked ok so I went further back.
This has indeed to do with the dependency graph, because I go back and investigate the objects on which the erroneous object depends and then go back even further. But going just up the tree was in your case sufficient.
A different approach would start at the beginning, and check every single step until you find the culprit. For doing so you hide everything and then go down the tree by making visible the next object and investigate it.
