D is my choice.

Although C can not be refuted either.

I also agree that D is the best choice, but I can't explain why D is better than C.

Can anyone explain why D is better?
I would have picked D myself on the exam, but if someone asked me to justify my choice, I would have nothing to say but "well, it just sounds right"

C. charge three times the price that it charges
D. charge three times the price of what it charges

tough !

I will choose C

'charge' is being used as a transitive verb - meaning to fix or ask as fee or payment. Therefore, it does not need an 'at' or 'of'.

for example:
charge \$50 for a service
