A. lobbied for stadiums with fewer seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
B. lobbied for stadiums with less seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
C. lobbied for stadiums that had fewer seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
D. lobbied for stadiums that had less seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
E. lobbied for stadiums that had less seats as a means of reducing supply so they could increase ticket prices.

Less = not countable, Fewer = Countable...eliminate B/D/E

C. tense error? "have fewer seats vs had?"

I pick A.

A. lobbied for stadiums with fewer seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
B. lobbied for stadiums with less seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
C. lobbied for stadiums that had fewer seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
D. lobbied for stadiums that had less seats to reduce supply and increase ticket prices.
E. lobbied for stadiums that had less seats as a means of reducing supply so they could increase ticket prices.

C,D,and E use "Past Perfect Tense" incorrectly.

We are left with A and B.

With Fewer seats and With lesser seats.

Fewer implies "of a smaller number2

Smaller implies " smaller in size, inferior etc."

Why is C wrong? it's using simple past tense only.
