Although none of these answers is really good, the best of the options given is B.

After WWI, the United States was trying to pull back and to ensure that it would never have to be involved in another such war.  The US was attempting this through trying to outlaw war (in the Kellogg-Briand Pact) and through arms control (the Washington Naval Agreements).  This was not done to convince other countries that the US was peaceable.  It was done to prevent other countries from pulling the US into war.

However, B is still the best answer because these actions are clearly not those of a bully and do reflect a fairly isolationist attitude.
