• A.

Then

• B.

Than

B. Than
Explanation
The correct answer is "than". In this sentence, "than" is used to compare the speaker's jack-o-lantern to other jack-o-lanterns. It indicates that the speaker's jack-o-lantern is superior or of higher quality compared to the others. "Then" is not the correct choice because it is used to indicate a sequence of events or a time frame, which is not relevant in this context.
