Reply to "fewest or least number"

Hello, ahmedtawfick,

"fewest" would be fine if "number" were not there:

- Ten is the fewest tourists allowed to be in the group. ("Tourists" is a count noun, so it takes "few" and its comparative/superlative forms, not "little").

If you want to keep the noun "number," you should say:

- Ten is the smallest/lowest number of tourists...
