Why not 'the charges of this hospital'?

Prasanna said:   1 decade ago
Since 'charges' is plural, so it should be. Are less than those (i.e charges) in the hospital near my house.

Why not lesser than an error?

The error I found was in the question.

"Read(the?) each sentence to find out whether there is any grammatical error in it. The error, if any(,) will be in one part of the sentence. the letter of that part is the answer.

If there is no error, the answer is (")D(")NOT 'D'. (ignore the errors of punctuation, if any).

Should it not be lesser than instead of less than?

There should be 'fewer' in place of 'less' as charges in part A is plural countable noun.

Why not "The charges in the hospital are less than those near my house. " "Those" indicates hospital in the 2nd part of the sentence.
