Virtualization allows you to provide more services with _______ servers.
a. less
b. fewer

Answer: b

Explanation: Use fewer if you’re talking about something that can actually be counted and a number can be substituted for the word fewer.

Use less for things that can’t actually be counted. You’ll know when to use less because substituting a number for the word less in the sentence doesn’t make sense.
