no brainer... b/w A and C due to "less" seats is wrong... we can count seats, so must use "fewer"

A is more concise and clear, so I pick it

Seats are countable...
therefore "fewer" should be used instead of "lesser".

Between A & C, A is concise. No need for "that had" in C.

Splendid analysis U2 lovergirl.

OA is A. 'Fewer' answers the question, "How many?" (fans, balls, hot dogs) and 'less' answers the question, "How much?" (soda, dirt, salt). This eliminates answer choices B, D, and E. Answer choice C is unnecessarily wordy and introduces temporal ambiguity.

Late but exactly same reasoning. Great work U2loverGIRL.
