<!--[if lt IE 9]>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/libs/html5shiv/3.7.0/html5shiv.js"></script>
      <script src="https://oss.maxcdn.com/libs/respond.js/1.4.2/respond.min.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->

I think if it's less than IE 9 then link to some js library.  However, what's all that [ ] brackets.  What to do with that?  I thought comment is <!--   -->  
How do I un-comment this?

These are called conditional comments, you can read up on them here

[]  whatever inside is condition for the comment.

I guess you should remove

You shouldn't uncomment those lines.  They are for IE only and the comments that are there 'hide' them from the other browsers that do not need those javascripts.

Important  As of Internet Explorer 10, conditional comments are no longer supported by standards mode. Use feature detection to provide effective fallback strategies for website features that aren't supported by the browser. For more info about standards mode, see Defining Document Compatibility.

got the above from Raheman's url link, What should I use to replace these ?

Thanks.

You don't need to replace them or do anything else with them.  They are there to make up for deficiencies in earlier browsers.  IE10 can ignore them and still work just fine.
