C, D and E imply that trucks came off the assembly lines themselves... funny :)

I will go with B as well. That is required to refer to the number of trucks and cars in the previous clause.

A. the numbers of tucks alone - use of numbers.
B. that number of trucks alone - fine for now
C. the number of trucks by themselves – by themselves is wrong.
D. as many trucks themselves - fine for now.
E. as many trucks by themselves – by themselves is wrong.

Between B & D. I’m not sure D does not fit well for SWE standards (IMO).

I pick B.

The idiom "as many as" is not completed in D and E

A - "the" is a definite article but does not specify a total count that is needed to complete the sentence.

B - Best Answer!
