Explanation

You want a word that means “not as naïve as one pretends.” Disingenuous mean precisely that, and one meaning of artful is “deceptive.” This sentence is difficult because the word impressed is used to refer to making an impression in a negative way.

Finally, culpable means “guilty” and is an attractive trap, but goes further than the clues in the sentence allow you. The clues clearly indicate that you need words that mean “not naïve.”

Hence options disingenuous, artful are correct!
