With a renewal rate of less than 65 percent and fewer new subscribers than last year, the Flash fashion journal is in danger of folding by the end of the next quarter.

A. of less than 65 percent and fewer ---> Correct

B. lower than 65 percent and less ---> "less" cannot be used with "subscribers"

C. lesser than 65 percent and fewer ---> "lesser" is wrong

D. fewer than 65 percent and less ---> "fewer" and "less" should change place

E. of fewer than 65 percent and fewer ---> first "fewer" is wrong

lesser isn't necessarily always wrong...
Less suggests amount; lesser suggests degree. In this case less is appropriate.
