Answer : ３
The meaning of the underlined sentence’s above is (I) dislike/hate this picture or drawing, The important keyword on this sentence is ‘kirai’ which means hate or dislike. Based on it, we can conclude that the first answer is not the answer, because it actually has the opposite meaning which is ‘like’ that is held by the word ‘suki’. The second and forth option is also not suitable for an answer because it is not discussing about like or dislike. Those two sentence are describing the characteristic of the picture itself which is represented by the adjective ‘kirei’. It is an adjective that means pretty, beautiful, magnificient. The best answer is the third option which means (I) don’t like the picture by negating ‘suki’ into ‘suki dewa arimasen’.
