A) less than thirty thousand dollars in advance ticket sales and fewer >>> CORRECT.
B) fewer than thirty thousand dollars in advance ticket sales and less>>>> "Less acceptances" is wrong here and also less than thirty thousand is Correct usage"
C) fewer than thirty thousand dollars in advance ticket sales and fewer>>>> Less than thirty thousand is Correct usage"
D) lesser than thirty thousand dollars in advance ticket sales and fewer>>> Lesser is used for comparison, but there is no comparison in the actual sentence...less than thirty thousand dollars .
E) less than thirty thousand dollars in advance ticket sales and as few>>> as there is comparison in the actual sentence... "fewer acceptance than expected" is better.
