Explanation

The first blank refers to state of papal power under Innocent; since his immense personal prestige cowed even kings, a word that means something like high point or greatest period would make sense in the blank. Of the choices, only zenith works.

The second blank refers to John of England. Both the trigger from … to and the epithets given to John indicate that you need a word that contrasts with powerful. Of the answer choices, only feckless, which means ineffective, fits.

The third blank needs to contrast with spiritual: Don’t be fooled by the word and, which is part of the change direction trigger tension between … and. Temporal is the only choice that makes sense.

Hence options A, D and H are correct!
