I guess A is the "best answer" I originally thought B said "the number". Are we sure there isn't a typo?

elim CDE b/c themselves sounds like the trucks are in control of their own actions... i guess if were in the world of tommy the train or whatever.

Can't be A...for several reasons;
first, "the numbers of trucks" is not correct; correct form would be "number of trucks"
second, "...twice the numbers" cannot be correct because we don't know what does twice THE numbers refers to??; it should be twice THAT numbers, "that" would imply 469,000 from the first part of the sentence.
