After the complaints Luther brought up was the church reformed or did the church just try to counter Lutheran attempts at reform
The Catholic movement (in response to Protestantism) is referred as both the counter and the catholic reformation. The reason why is that it incorporated both efforts to reform the church and to counter the rise of protestantism

1) think of the concordat of Bologna (1516)
How and why did Francis I try to prevent an ecumenical council from uniting and discussing church corruption?
Charles V owned so much land that he almost completely surrounded France. by urging the pope to not call an ecumenical council he helped to maintain the political and religious tensions in Germany. This meant germany would have an even more difficult time of uniting (exactly what France wanted)
Ok Francis I was pretty smart abt trying to prevent German unification but were there any successful attempts at forming an ecumenical council
In 1545 a council assembled and met in Trent(border of Germany and Italy). It was successful that it finally met. Its meetings were at irreguluar intervals for almost 20 yrs.

Did the church continue to sell indulgences after what happened with luther?
No at the Council of trent they decided to stop selling indulgences
by having the bishops reside in their own dioceses what type of corruption was prevented?
The council of Trent realized that if a bishop had to remain in his district pluralism and simony would be suppressed.
ok We know that the Council of Trent was summoned due to church problems. But who arranged it?
In order to be elected as pope the Cardinal Alexander Farnese promised German cardinals to summon a counciil. and he did
Was the council solely for Catholics?
no the council was open to reconciliation with the Protestants (reconcile but not accept them back into the church) but, their insistence that the scriptures be the sole basis for discussion made reconciliation impossible.

in the council scripture and tradition were given equal footing. This means that the Protestant belief, faith can be found in the Bible alone, was rejected
