I don't understand this question :
what were the circumstances of hamlet sr.'s death?
are they asking what triggered his death?
or what was the situation that triggered hamlet's death?
The question is asking how the elder Hamlet died. You'll find this question answered when the ghost of the elder Hamlet speaks with his son (Hamlet) in the first act.
thank you so much! you're helping us a lot :)
