Close-up hooks

In Exercise 6 (p 43-44), "a simple deleted symbol suffices at the beginning of a word" when the copyeditor deleted the "s" at the beginning of "as." To clarify, is it unnecessary to use close-up hooks at the beginning of words and sentences, and at the end of words and sentences?

Also, in Exercise 6 (p 49), after consistent style, the copyeditor used two close-up hooks (one above, and one below), would it have been more appropriate to use just one close-up hook on top to "decrease space"?

The answer is yes to both your questions.
