Answer 1. The only shunt reactors I know are used on transmission lines to alter power factor. This is nothing to do with the nuclear reactor in a power plant.

Answer 2. I agree. Shunt reactors are use on transmission line and EHV to boost voltage, to generate VARs and for power factor correction.

What are the uses of nuclear reactors?

The primary use of nuclear reactors is to produce electricity, which is the only way to use nuclear energy on a large scale. Small reactors are used for research, and are also used to produce radioisotopes for medical and industrial use. Reactors are also used to power some naval vessels and submarines. Reactors have also been used to produce plutonium and tritium needed to make nuclear weapons.

Descibe about shunt reactors?

Shunt reactors are the inductors connected across the power line for power factor correction.The reactors injects reactive power in the transmission line for voltage compensation. The only disvantage of this shunt reactors is that it shorts whenever high voltage or transients occurs.Only stepped variation of the reactive power is possible.
