thanks for tip but to be more clear...actual rules
The K800 lays down the law on the topic - it clearly states:
Use ‘greater than’ when describing numbers ALONE. Use ‘more than’ when describing number of objects or when making comparisons.
E.g. ‘Greater than one hundred’ OR ‘more than one dozen fishes’ OR ‘I love you more than I love anything else’
There is no number defined in the problem below, still the answer is A with "greater than". Seems like there is an exception to what K800 says. Please correct me if I missed anything.

If you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of anybody! Cowards do that and You're better than that!
The path is long, but self-surrender makes it short; the way is difficult, but perfect trust makes it easy.
Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING.
Failure establishes only this, that our determination to succeed was not strong enough.
Getting defeated is just a temporary notion, giving it up is what makes it permanent.
Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.
