Less/Fewer Exercise

The traditional rule for less and fewer is that we use less for non-count nouns (patience, determination, traffic, pollution, rain, etc.) and fewer for count nouns (laptops, people, employees, services, etc.). However, as this article points out, there are exceptions to this rule. A better rule is the “singular versus plural” rule. We use less for singular nouns and fewer for plural nouns.

Choose either less or fewer to complete the sentences. Before trying the exercise, read the article linked to above.
