I think twice is not underlined.

A. the numbers of trucks alone B. that number of trucks alone C. the number of trucks by themselves D. as many trucks themselves E. as many trucks by themselves

B.

1. trucks "by themselves" came off - Seems like the trucks started moving by themselves, like in the horror movies. C and E are out. I think the same can be said about D too.
2. I choose B.
In A, "twice the number of trucks" means the 1929 truck count. Twice the number of trucks in 1929, cannot come out in 1929 itself.
By bringing "that", the number referred is 469,000 - 1914 total count.

I agree with the horror movie comment.
I concur with hardworking_ind...B it is. _________________

'that' refers to the preivous number of 469k rightly. Without the relative pronoun 'that' the sentence lack the element of 'to what extent or to what degree'.

To add to this...with A) twice the number could refer to 'twice 1929' _________________

I chose B because I felt the need for 'that'.

So, if I had to calculate the question mathematically, I would calculate the number of trucks in 1929 as (2 * X) and 'that' in B helps me tells what the number X is i.e 429 K. _________________

A. the numbers of trucks alone - 'numbers of' is always wrong B. that number of trucks alone - CORRECT C. the number of trucks by themselves D. as many trucks themselves - 'as many as' is the correct idiom. E. as many trucks by themselves - same as D.

What are differences between that and the here? Could anyone explain it for me? _________________
