This is a basic use of comparatives.

Less difficult than you think.

Always easy to remember than as 'comparative' and then as 'time'

then: at that time


THAN :used as a function word to indicate the second member or the member taken as the point of departure in a comparison expressive of inequality —used with comparative adjectives and comparative adverbs

This speacially confuses beginners so i thought a dictionary definition might help also.

The answer is than. It's bigger than his.

Then
is mainly an adverb, often used to situate actions in time. For example, you wake up in the morning and then have breakfast.
Than is a conjunction used mainly in making comparisons—e.g., “My breakfast is better than yours”; “I make breakfast [FONT=Georgia, serif]differe[/FONT][FONT=Georgia, serif]ntly than[/FONT] you do.”

I think the answer is "than"
"Than" is a conj. and it means to compare something
For example: Elephants are bigger than ants.
