In addition to it.. we are comparing total sales with a number which is 300 thousand dollars.. its not right to say 2 is lesser than 3.. similarly total sales is less than 300, not lesser than 300 or even fewer than 300 (countable quantity)
I fell for C. Nilesh376: Thanks for the explanation.

The usage of “lesser” is incorrect in Choice C because “less” is already in comparative degree.
Little (positive), Less (comparative), Least (superlative)
Hence, we cannot use “lesser” to show the comparative degree. As one of the posters mentioned, we can use it as adjective followed by a noun.
For e.g.: I have lesser ice cream than you have.
Hope this helps. Thanks Shraddha
