Explanation

The key to this sentence comes at the very end, when you learn that Hamlet is not “paralyzed with depression.” We’ve already read in the middle part of the sentence that he is not paralyzed, so the depression part must come from the blank.

Indecisive and monologic both fit the famous character of Hamlet, but they don’t fit the sentence (nor do they make a pair). Similarly, violent and barbaric would be accurate in describing Hamlet, but they don’t fit the sentence. Only melancholy and morose match the meaning you want.

Hence options melancholy, morose are best fit!
