    Re: A few more or less

    I'd say that ''b'' and ''d' work well in this sentence.
    I wonder what's the right answer.
    just a student.

    Re: A few more or less

    On the last count there are now at least four threads with this question. Some class is making hay while the sun shines.

    It would be helpful if the posters give some idea of which they see as the right answer.

    Re: A few more or less

    I wonder why "less" doesn't work.
    thanks.

    PS: If "a few more" works can I say that just "more" also works? if so, why "less" doesn't?
