Ritesh:
could you elaborate more?
I was really stuck on this, btw D & E, I thnk the number of drug users increased so thats what we are comparing, in E it just says "a" number increased...

I would really like a good discussion on this topic..

(D) twice as much as those reported in the 1977 survey
(E) twice the number reported in the 1977 survey

if you break D, it looks something like this..
twice as much as those (adults) reported in the 1977 survey.

I think sentence is more fluid with THE NUMBER, since the number seems to indicate the 20% percent correctly...

As much as is used for non-count noun but here the noun, adults, is count-noun so go with number in E.

Percentages are tricky. We aren`t given a concrete number of countable adults so I`ll have to go with D.

20% of young adults.
You dont know how many adults, but it is actually a concrete number.

Hope that helps.
