Does this meal cost $50? I _______ something far better than this!
A. prefer B. expect C. suggest D. suppose
The given answer is B. But I would think that 'expected' is better because I didn't expect it would cost so much. Am I right? Thank you in advance.

"Expect" implies that, as a general rule, you think a better meal should be provided for $50.
"Expected" implies that in this particular instance you thought a better meal would be provided.
