1 Qh5+ Rg5  2 Qxg5#

Too easy.

Why didn't the black bishop take the white knight after the first move?

 

When the black king moved up after the knight's first move, why didn't the queen move into B7?

Excellent

can anyone tell me why after first move horse to d6 Nd6+ opponent is not caputing the horse by bishop removing the check threat?

more than one way to do mate in five moves (or less).  For example the last move can be QxP mate, or Qa6 mate.instead of pushing the pawn. There are other variations beginning with the 3rd move, that transpose the moves shown, with the same result.
