A - "Since...as many": is wrong idiom, the correct usage is "as many ... as"

B - "was only one-fourth in 1965" - one-fourth of what?

C - "1965 on" is worng idiom

D - Quadrupling and "four times" - Unnecessarily wordy

E - This is concise and correct. My choice is E

(A) Since 1965 there are four times as many Black college students enrolled (this doesn’t make complete sense)
(B) The enrollment of Black college students was only one-fourth in 1965 (not right)
(C) The enrollment of Black college students has increased four times from 1965 on (awkward. What is on?)
(D) Quadrupling since 1965, there are now four times as many Black college students enrolled (redundancy in quadrupling and four times)
(E) The enrollment of Black college students has quadrupled since 1965

Thus E it is

Answer is E

Choice A is wrong, because Since... as many is idiomatically wrong.
B As AJB77 points out one-fourth of what?
C on, and the one million.... is wrong
D Conveys the meaning correctly, but E does so, in a more concise manner.
