By looking at AND i thought this issue is also testing parallelism. Are less and fewer parallel?

In addition to it.. we are comparing total sales with a number which is 300 thousand dollars.. its not right to say 2 is lesser than 3.. similarly total sales is less than 300, not lesser than 300 or even fewer than 300 (countable quantity)

I fell for C.
Nilesh376: Thanks for the explanation.

A is correct.
Less can be used with money , when we treat the amount of money as a whole, if we have to consider the number of notes of the money, then few or fewer will be used.
A is correct.

Hi All,

The usage of “lesser” is incorrect in Choice C because “less” is already in comparative degree.

Little (positive), Less (comparative), Least (superlative)

Hence, we cannot use “lesser” to show the comparative degree. As one of the posters mentioned, we can use it as adjective followed by a noun.

For e.g.: I have lesser ice cream than you have.

Hope this helps.
Thanks

I marked C but figured out my mistake.."lesser" is not used in GMAT in this context...
Oh well, live and learn..hopefully before the GMAT

Was confused between A &C and opted for the latter. the 'and' and thoughts of parallelism were the driving force. But the explanation makes sense!

thanks for the explanation....

as per my understanding:

sales lesser than three hundred thousand dollars and fewer ....

what i thought sales is compared to 300 dollars which is not correct ...that is why it is wrong.....

but suppose we replace lesser with less then i think my reasoning will be correct i think..

suggest me

thanks
