C for me!
Vast quantities, large amounts, vast amounts, great quantities all don't apply to people.

I choose (E). The idiom "both... and" (E) is preferred over "alike" in (A) and "the numbers" is wrong in choice (C), as there is only one number to represent the number of people.

Qn to you all. I agree - Vast quantities, large amounts, vast amounts, great quantities all don't apply to people. However, shouldn't it be "great number of"? "numbers of is wrong" isn't it?

I chose C as well, but I would require this clarification.

both rich and poor - Is this correct. I thought both is unnecessary here.

Thanks

Absolutely C!
E can't be correct because " both ....and" without " alike" eliminates the meaning of the sentence that " the speculative fever of the Roaring Twenties infected rich and poor alike/at the same level"
