    militarily

    1)The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and what
    would be militarily necessary to deal with such an event.
    2)The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and what
    would be necessary militarily to deal with such an event.
    3)The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and what
    would be necessary militarily to deal with such an event militarily.



    ME: I feel that the 2nd is the best and the 1st not good. Especially, in my understanding, the 3rd is strange and may be not right.
    QUESTION: Are my ideas right?
    Thanks in advance!

    In my opinion. the first is the best and the second is next. The third is not possible because of the repeat of the word "militarily".

    Sorry! I'm too careless to reapeat the word "militarily" in the 3rd!
    So, the 3rd is supposed to be the following:
    3)The British Admiralty and the War Office met in March 1892 to consider a possible Russian attempt to seize Constantinople and what
    would be necessary to deal with such an event militarily.



    Now, I suddenly feel the sentence is right although it is just not so good!
    Am I right?
