    shabby/vulgar

    Hi,

    Which is the correct answer of this sentence?

    This old room has not been much in use of late. No wonder it has such a _______ appearance.

    a)vulgar
    b)cheap
    c)shabby
    d)fancy

    I think "c" is the correct answer but I only heard people say "you look shabby", and never consider it refers to a thing, such as a room. "a", vulgar, refers to a thing or person, is also possible.

    So, is "shabby" the right answer?
