By buying directly from fishing boats, the restaurant keeps its lobster menu __________.

a. shabby
b. effortless
c. expensive
d. affordable

I am confused between C and D.
Because of buying directly from fishing boats, the fish from the boats is very fresh, and so it could be expensive.
Or, because of buying directly from fishing boats, there are no middlemen or retaliers, and then the fish from the boats could be affordable.

What do you think of that?

lol. you're joking right? technically the sentence is wrong because the restaurant cant buy anything from a fisherman as the restaurant is not a living entity. if we ignore that, the choice is D.

This is probably a GRE question but not a GMAT one.

I would go with Option D.
But again have the same doubt as you have because both the reasonings cited by you seem to be fair enough
