    This page explains and lists both "count" and "non-count" nouns. You use "less than" with non-count nouns; you use "fewer than" with count nouns.

    Also, with comparative forms, you need to make sure the comparison is complete. I've also corrected fuzzy comparisons below.

    1. Do you sleep fewer than 5 hours a day?
    2. I like you less than he does.
    3. I ate fish less often than fruit.
