1. Why does Polonius give Reynaldo advice on how to have a conversation with someone?
2. Where do Rosencrants and Guildenstern's true loyalties lie?
3. The Queen knows partly why Hamlet is acting strange, yet she doesn't stand up for him. Why?
4. King Claudius refuses to believe that the main thing wrong with Hamlet, is his father's death. Why? Is he trying to ruin Hamlet's reputation? Does he trust Hamlet?
5. Why does Polonius make up the fake letter from Hamlet to Ophelia?
It was hard for me to understand exactly who trusted who in this act. The allegiances and alliances made within the book so far have been unclear and deceiving, making it hard to understand the true motives of many of the characters.
