I made fewer mistakes this time.
The project is less complicated than the last one.



fewer(Adj) + Count Noun ==> fewer + friends
less(comparative of 'little',acting as an Adv) + Adjective ==> less + beautiful
less(comparative of 'little',acting as an Adj) + Uncount Noun ==> less + money


I eat less chocolate and fewer biscuits than I used to.
The project is less complicated, so I make fewer mistakes.
I spend less time as well. :D
