(C) lesser than three hundred thousand dollars and fewer
(D) fewer than three hundred thousand dollars and less
(E) of fewer than three hundred thousand dollars and of fewer

IMO A).

B) "less" - at the end is meaningless for countable items. "less" used for uncountable.
C) "lesser" - we cannot use "lesser"
D) "fewer" - it cannot be used for uncountable items.
E) same as D).

From A and C.
I go with A coz in C "sales lesser than three hundred dollars" is awkward...comparing sales with dollars!!

Hi mates,

IMO A

first, "subscribers" must go with fewers, therefore B and D out.

Then, "lesser" is not correct. C out.

Now, between A and E, I'd with A. E sounds wordy to me

OA and Source?

Thanks

IMO A

Between A & C, A sounds more idiomatic.

IMO A.
C I don't like because 'lesser' canot be used with 'sales', imo.

I am confused between A and C. Anyone care to explain why not C? I am convinced why we can not use lesser in c?
