Also went with C.
Rate of increase cannot be fast or greater.

Here the correct answer is C as it correctly the two different time periods (1980’s & 1970's).

404. In the 1980’s the rate of increase of the minority population of the United States was nearly twice as fast as the 1970’s.

(A) twice as fast as
(B) twice as fast as it was in
(C) twice what it was in
(D) two times faster than that of
(E) two times greater than

The reason I rejected C was no 'of ' in C. Shouldnt it be "twice of what it was in 1970's '' ?

“Rate” can’t be fast. “Rate” can be high. (The way height can’t be tall)
A, B, and E are incorrect because of the use of “fast/faster” for “rate”
E: “in” is missing after “than”
C: concise and clear. Best choice.
