B is clear.
fewer > less since drive inns are countable. B and C left. C has evil "that". B remains.

Btw this SC is based on idiom "as many X as Y"

"that" many? Ask yourself "what" many? "that" does not have antecedent.

Three reasons to eliminate C
a. that - pronoun ambiguity
b. "amount" is uncountable. But drive ins are countable.
c. Last but not the least "unidiomatic" construction in C.
