fresinha maybe this will help :
http://www.agriculture.purdue.edu/agcom ... d_less.htm

To quote :
"you should only use “over,” “under,” “above,” “below,” “higher,” and “lower” to describe physical relationships in space. For just about everything else — especially numbers — use “more” or “less.”

The bear climbed over the mountain. The eggs are under the toast. The detergent is in the cabinet above the washing machine. The creepy basement is below the trapdoor. The ceilings here are higher than in our old place. The river is lower than it was last week. But there are more than 100 people here and less than half of them know what they are doing."

Employment costs rose 2.8 percent in the 12 months that ended in September, slightly less than they did in the year that ended in the previous quarter.
A, less than they did
B, less than it did
C, less than they were
D, lower than[they did]
E, lower than they were

A is the best!
