J'ai besoin query

 In the following question the answer is given as 'plus d'argent que' having de before plus doesn't sound right to me, can someone explain please.

"Avoir besoin de" is the standard expression.

Then we have the need for more money than the previous year  --> Avoir besoin de plus de    --  more of, just some more of;  hence d'argent   

 

Hope that this helps

Thanks, I get 'avoir besoin de'. It just didn't sound right at the time.
