    Re: Less amount

    "Lower amount" or "lesser amount."

    Re: Less amount

    But it sounds odd. "You paid this lesser amount". I think you are saying, we should say "Why have you paid less anount or kesser amount". I can't work with this or that.

    Re: Less amount

    He is not saying that. He has very clearly said that either "lower" or "lesser" should be substituted for "less."
