    1) Hamlet wonders whether he should make a stand against his sea of troubles or leave things as they are. OK

    2) He believes that both active and passive resistance is bound to meet failure. This reads awkwardly because "both" indicates a plural, but the subject and verb are singular. Please rephrase.

    4) He wonders whether he should offer passive or active resistance. OK

    5) Hamlet seems to turn more specifically to suicide. OK

    6) The idea of death is divided into sleep, which is desirable and dreams.
    He wonders whether there will be dreams after death. Rethink the punctuation in the first sentence.

    7)After doing the shopping you go to the check-out counter, put your items on the conveyor belt, and pay for them by credit card or cash. Notice word change and punctuation, too.
