The idioms are: less than for uncountable and fewer for countable.
A should be the answer.

Im going with A

Population is uncountable therefore it should but used with less
females is countable therefore it should be used with few

in C lesser than is unidiomatic

With a total population of less than two hundred

i thought fewer than two hundred would be more appropriate..do you think we should not look at the actual number here(two hundred) and rather look at the noun (population) to determine if to use fewer/less?
