(A) twice as fast as ( as fast as what)
(B) twice as fast as it was in
clear
(C) twice what it was in twice should be followed by comparison
(D) two times faster than that of ( of what 1970 or pop)
(E) two times greater than ( greater than in 1970) unclesr

I will go for C. 'what it was' replaces rate of population increase. as fast as in B looks redundant to me.

B is the best choice here. You need to compare the rate of increase of 1980 to that of 1970's...not rate of increase to 1970's as the sentence incorrectly does.

'Rate" represents a certain number so 'Rate' can't be fast..

C is the answer

Give me C!
- A, B and D are redundant
- E has a wrong comparison.
