For whom are the gravediggers preparing a grave in the play Hamlet?
The gravediggers are digging Ophelia's grave.
There isn't one. There are two gravediggers in Hamlet, but their job is to make graves, not take dead bodies out of them.
Horatio. Fortinbras. The English Ambassador. These three are on stage at the end. There are, of course, a number of characters who we assume are still alive: the gravediggers, Reynaldo, Voltimand and Cornelius, the players, the pirates and Osric.

It's from Hamlet. That is the famous scene in which Hamlet holds the skull of "poor Yorick" and goes on about life and mortality. The line is actually "Alas, poor Yorick.

The following persons in the dramatis personae are not related (and by this I mean connected by blood) to anyone else in the dramatis personae:Fortinbras, Horatio, Voltimand, Cornelius, Rosencrantz, Guildenstern, Osric, Marcellus, Barnardo, Francisco, Reynaldo, the players, the sailors, the English Ambassador, the Captain in Fortinbras's army and the Gravediggers. In short, the only people in the dramatis personae who are related to other people are Hamlet, Claudius, Gertrude, the Ghost, Polonius, Ophelia and Laertes.
The answer is Hamlet.

"Who's there?" is the first line from the play Hamlet.
Hamlet thinks Guildenstern is trying to play Hamlet like an instrument because Guildenstern was trying to make Hamlet say things that Guildenstern was told to make him say. So Hamlet says if Guildenstern can play a person like an instrument then he should be able to play the recorder. Hamlet knows he can't play the recorder but he is trying to make a point.
King Hamlet isn't. King Hamlet was. In the play Hamlet, King Hamlet was the previous king of Denmark and father to Prince Hamlet after whom the play is named. At the time the play starts. King Hamlet is already dead. However, his ghost makes an appearance in Act 1 Scene 1 and in three scenes thereafter.

The mouse trap is the play inside the play. Hamlet crates a play simulating his father's death in front of his uncle. Hamlet expects his uncle to react in order to show that he's the murderer.
Hamlet is a play, and within it, there is a play. In Hamlet, Hamlet believes that his uncle murdered his father in order to usurp the throne. Trying to gain evidence to support his belief, Hamlet puts on a play, and during the murder scene, he watches to see how his Uncle reacts. "The play's the thing wherein I'll catch the conscience of the King!" (See the link below for further explanation of this quotation.)
The reason for the play within the play is to see Claudius's reaction to the parts of the play that are mirroring the murder of King Hamlet. King Hamlet's Ghost told Hamlet that Claudius was his murderer but Hamlet feels the need to investigate it. By having Horatio watch the King's reaction, he can judge if Claudius was actually the killer.
Hamlet asks Horatio to do lots of things in the play: keep quiet about the ghost, watch the king during the play, etc. At the end of the play, Hamlet asks Horatio to stay alive and tell his story.
