The best answer of the options given here is C. 

One thing that is worth noting here (as a test taking strategy) is that you can immediately rule out D.  You can see that A and C contradict one another.  Since this is the case, D cannot possibly be true. 

At the Vienna Conference, Khrushchev is said to have browbeaten Kennedy.  He believed that Kennedy was young and inexperienced and he tried to dominate the new president.  This means that A is not correct and it also means that there is no reason that Kennedy would have felt that he had saved the world.  Therefore, C is the best answer.
