C.
A, B & D introduce rate of increase….as fast/faster than…which is unidiomatic. rates can be less/greater than but not faster/slower than/as fas as.

E wrongly compares rate of increase to 1970.

C. Pretty straight forward, 'twice what it was in' the 1970's.

We are comparing rates of increase , so we can not Fast / Great etc... for rates...

Thus option (C) is the best and the correct answer !!
