A

He asks the actor to reenact the murder of King Hamlet as a variation on The Murder of Gonzago.

B

He asks the actor to toss him his sword in the midst of the action so that Hamlet can surprise Claudius with a dramatic act of revenge.

C

He asks the actor if he will insert some extra lines he (Hamlet) has prepared for the performance.

D

He asks the actor to behave disrespectfully toward Polonius because he (Polonius) is a meddlesome and tiresome person.
