(B) "are LESSER", not "LESS", since, when in comparing we use 2nd degree adjective, as convention.

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

I guess 'lesser than those ' is appropriate.

Why not lesser than? Explain.

Huddie said:   6 years ago
'those in the hospitals' or 'that in the hospital'? Which is correct? Please explain.

Prachi said:   7 years ago
Why "those"? Please explain it clearly.

Jeetu singh said:   7 years ago
Since we use the 2nd form of degree. So won't it be lesser than?

Kavya Shree said:   8 years ago
The charges in this hospital are lesser than those hospitals near my house. I guess this is more appropriate.
