Some of these sentences do not require subjunctive. The second one, for example, is indicative, as you have correctly written.

The third, however, should be subjunctive ( form, because the command that follows is familiar).

I respectfully disagree with geofc on the last one. If it were worded differently ("No creo que...") it would call for subjunctive. You have done it correctly.

Yo creo que el vendedero es honrado. (declaration) ¿Cree Ud. que el vendedero sea...? implies doubt. Do you think that the seller is honest? - 0074b507, MAY 17, 2010
¡Cree Ud. que el vendedor es honrado? I amazed that you believe that the seller is honest. ( your declaration)) - 0074b507, MAY 17, 2010
I see your point. Thanks! - tennismom, MAY 17, 2010

Pretty good!

Remember that doubt calls for the subjunctive, so look over what you have done with those sentences.

In the third sentence, you are not the subject. "llámalo" is a command that you are giving someone else. Who?

When you see the waiter, call him. The subjunctive is used after cuando when it refers to future time. - 0074b507, MAY 17, 2010

Congratulations chica; you've provided answers.

Mostly you're good but for "Cuando (ver) ____________ al camarero, llamalo." Can't be "veo" because the speaker is asking you to call the waiter. So it should be "ves". Aunque (ser) ___________________ tarde, iremos al cine. (Indicate uncertainty) needs a subjunctive to indicate that uncertainty so "sea" not "es" ?Cree Ud. que el vendedor (ser) __________ honrado? (Indicate a hint of doubt.) needs to use the subjuctive for that hint of doubt. Hence you use "sea" not "es".

Bearing in mind that this is rather obviously an exercise in the subjunctive, you should trawl through the rest now to check if you need to change any more of them.
