hallo,
Think that the options with "less" should be eliminated cause it is about countables. Then we should choose between B and E. think that two times PrPerfect in one sentence is incorrect. I would chose E

oa is e
my 2 cents
less vs. fewer
1-should be fewer
3-which
4-number vs. people
2-needs 'those" or "people"

Can someone explain the difference btwn the usage of LOWER vs. LESS?
