Google will prefer your content in the targeted country but that does not mean when you choose USA India will be rejected. You will get results in India as well but USA will be preferred by Google.

While you have a clear mindset regarding specific target audience, you can set so in Google Webmaster Tool, which would target that particular geographic area, thus letting you focus effectively upon them

It has great benefits, you are visible to your target audience only, which ultimately focuses on their relevant content for you to work upon.

If you select a target country in google webmaster tools, then your search rankings will receive a slight bump in that country. For example, if you select US, your search ranking may improve a bit in US, provided your content is good and you have decent relevant backlinks. However, please note, it might lower your rankings in other countries (e.g UK, Canada, etc). You should be careful when you use this option.

If you select target country the USA then Google will come to know that you are targeting your website in the USA. If your website has a good reputation then it can be shown in multiple countries.

Nothing. You will still get indexed and rank appropriately.

If you select a country in WMT, that means you prefer to show the contents to the local visitor. Google will give you the better ranking in that country. But your site still can be indexed in another google.

Any first hand experience to prove this?
I have a doubt because, my .in domain site automatically targets India and webmaster tools doesn't let me target any other country via tools as .in itself is my signal to them. Now, when I see analytics, US tops the geographic reach all the time. India remains 2nd and 3rd for most the months.

Target country in google search webmaster tools, it is one type of localization. which you are telling to google that which is your local country and google will give it the first priority than another country.

And if you changed to USA, then google will check your website domain content and then it will set Country priority.
