It has to be A.

- "three hundred thousand dollars" is an amount of money - less, more

- "new subscribers" is a countable noun - fewer, more

\$300k is a number. Therefore, we want 'less than.' We can count 'subscribers', so we want to use 'fewer.' Only answer (A) matches this. Hopefully that makes sense, but if you have any more questions regarding 'fewer' vs. 'less than', I'll happily elaborate .
