IMO A).

B) "less" - at the end is meaningless for countable items. "less" used for uncountable.
C) "lesser" - we cannot use "lesser"
D) "fewer" - it cannot be used for uncountable items.
E) same as D).

From A and C.
I go with A coz in C "sales lesser than three hundred dollars" is awkward...comparing sales with dollars!!

Hi mates,

IMO A

first, "subscribers" must go with fewers, therefore B and D out.

Then, "lesser" is not correct. C out.

Now, between A and E, I'd with A. E sounds wordy to me

OA and Source?

Thanks

IMO A

Between A & C, A sounds more idiomatic.

IMO A.
C I don't like because 'lesser' canot be used with 'sales', imo.

I am confused between A and C. Anyone care to explain why not C? I am convinced why we can not use lesser in c?
