So the Polish translation is "less or more"?

Yes, the idiomatic phrase is "less or more" or even "less more".

"lub" or "albo" in a declarative sentence, "czy" in a question.

Also the suggested answer doesn't have anything because that's a fixed phrase and not a real "or", although of course you can interpret it literally.

Sorry, what's the question? The English idiomatic phrase is "more or less", that's just how it is.

why can't it be Wiecej czy mniej?
