There are two mechanisms of regulating renal blood flow, the myogenic mechanism and tubulo-glomerular feedback. This question asks purely about the myogenic mechanism, which is where the afferent arteriole controls blood flow based purely off blood pressure entering the kidney, which is why decreased afferent arteriolar resistance is the best answer (the arteriole is dilating in response to the decreased blood flow in attempt to maintain normal blood flow to the kidney).
Myogenic mechanism works in the afferent arteriole that supplies the glomerulus. When blood pressure increases, smooth muscle cells in the wall of the arteriole are stretched and respond by contracting to resist the pressure, resulting in little change in flow. When blood pressure drops, the same smooth muscle cells relax to lower resistance, allowing a continued even flow of blood.
