SOLUTION

Replace “less” with “fewer”. We use “fewer” with objects that can be counted one-by-one (e.g. Houses, newspapers, dogs, students, children). We use “less” with qualities or quantities that cannot be individually counted (e.g. Money, air, time, music, rain, population etc).
Hence, option B is the correct answer.
