I did not understand why the answer is (A) and not (D). $15000 is countable right , so answer should have fewer .. Somebody please clarify me..

fewer sources of alternate income is correct
less could be used but in this form less number of sources

consider this
I have fewer/lower than 10 Dollars
I have less than 10 Dollars
the latter is correct n thats obvious....
do correct me if i am wrong
