E , fewer than is the right idiom....I was about to pick D, but realized the idiom....

So here is a tip that works most of the time on SC, look for the first letter and the last letter in the options, see what changes....most of the times the first letter changes or one of the last letter changes...sometimes both...good way to detect what is being tested....

Another one for E. You can eliminate A &B because people is a countable noun, so use fewer instead of less. Then you can eliminate C & D because the correct idiom is fewer than.

I agree with the others.E is definitely correct for 2 reasons.
1. first & last word check
2. countable.
