Abstract: The main results of the paper are Theorems I.5.1, II.1.3 and III.2.1. Theorem I.5.1 states that if a maximal subalgebra $ M$ of a simple finite-dimensional Lie algebra $ G$ has solvable quotients of dimension $ \geqslant 2$, then every nilpotent element of $ H$ acts nilpotently on $ G$. Theorem II.1.3 states that if such a simple Lie algebra $ G$ contains a maximal subalgebra which is solvable, then $ G$ is Zassenbaus-Witt algebra. Theorem III.2.1 states that certain $ {\mathbf{Z}}$-graded finite-dimensional simple Lie algebras are either classical or the difference between the number of nonzero positive and negative homogeneous components is large.
