I am not sure between A and E. Let me go with A.

I remember very vaguely that uncountable things take "less" and countable things take "fewer".Breeding females is countable so I will go with "fewer". Now population, should be countable and also "fewer" but sounds funny. Probably there is an exception for population

I will go for A.

Population is unccountable, but number is countable.... we can not say 5 population but can say less populated, more populated....
