B

He feels entrapped by his situation as the son of a murdered king who must avenge his death.

C

He feels as if he cannot move freely in Denmark and is befuddled as to how he can exact revenge against Claudius.

D

He feels as if he is not allowed to return to Wittenberg, where he longs to be.

E

He feels persecuted by Polonius’s campaign to prove him mad for Ophelia’s love.
