One would say "you have less sand" but "you have fewer dollars".

Fewer is countable, so here we are talking about Drive-ins so I would pick C! You can eliminate 3 or 5 right away.

C, best answer!

A. there are less than one-quarter that many
B. there are fewer than one quarter as many
c. there are fewer than one quarter of that amount
D. the number is less than one quarter of that amount
E. it is less than one quarter of that amount


C, D & E - Eliminate - Use of "amount"
A - Eliminate - Does not show the comparison.

B - Gives the comparison by use of "fewer".

Hence B is the answer.

key words are "many" and "fewer"

Answer is B, amount cannot be use for something that is integer i.e count of numbers.
