Our clue for (i) is that they preferred to use other means as a way to respond to the war. With the word choices here, indirect to be the best answer.

For (ii), the key word is BUT. This means they did not interrogate politicians. Between the choices of "not to toady to" and "not to confront," not to confront is the best option.

From here (iii) comes together rather easily. Pragmatic does not seem to fit the idea of museums of art in the sentence, and atrocious has no context either. Ambivalent fits here perfectly.
