The sentence says that deadly force must be applied only after all actions of a particular type have been undertaken or exhausted. Clearly these would be actions that do not involve deadly force.

In this case we have no choice but to look at the answer choices.

It cannot be comparable action because it will have the same effect as deadly force.

It cannot be menacing for it is somewhat related to deadly force.

extraordinary does not make sense here and does not convey the opposite sense of "deadly force".

augmented can be eliminated for the same reason given above.

alternative action makes perfect sense. Only when all alternatives have been exhausted should deadly force be used.
