Hi,

) Why do people cut themeselves?

(=suicide?) No, not unless it is some very unusual context.

The normal usage is eg I cut myself while slicing onions.

B) I had a sandwich, chicken salad, and some apples juice for lunch.

(need any article?) No. You could say 'some' if you want to,

C) He would spend all his time to play computer games.

( --> playing computer games Yes ?)

A) Why do people cut themeselves?
(=suicide?) Well, mostly people cut themselves accidentally when working with tools in the shop or in the kitchen preparing food.

B) I had a sandwich, chicken salad, and some apples juice for lunch.
(need any article?) No.

C) He would spend all his time to play computer games.
( --> playing computer games ?) Yes. The present participle "playing" should be used here. It modifies "time".

A -- the question "why do people cut themselves?" might possibly refer to a type of deliberate self-injury that is a symptom of certain mental illnesses. Or it might be about kitchen or workshop safety -- "Why do people cut themeselves when chopping onions? Because they're not paying attention or they're holding the knife the wrong way." It would not normally refer to suicide. Note the correct spelling of "themselves."

B is a confusing sentence. Do you mean you had a chicken salad sandwich, or you had a sandwich (of some unspecified type) and also some chicken salad? Did you have some apples and also some juice, or did you have some apple juice?
