I wonder if the there was another option, lest's say f.
option f- as

more than three times as many independent institutions of higher education charge tuition and fees of under $8,000 a year as over $16,000.

It would still be OK, will it not?

This question is hard enough! Why make it harder by trying to invent your own answer choice? :)

As explained in this post, choice (D) essentially gives us "three times as many institutions do X as do Y." If we drop the second "do" (in other words, if we drop the second "charge", as you suggested), the comparison and the parallelism are no longer clear.

(D) would still be the best choice, and that's all you need to worry about!

What if we make "charging" to "charge" in option E then which would be the best answer. 'D' or 'E'
