According to surveys by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, about 20 percent of young adults used cocaine in 1979, doubling those reported in the 1977 survey.(

(A) doubling those reported in the 1977 survey - DOUBLING has distorted the actual meaning of the sentence.

(B) to double the number the 1977 survey reported - the 20 % have intentionally doubled the number, which is not the actual meaning

(C) twice those the 1977 survey reported - Wrong comparison - Number compared to people.

(D) twice as much as those reported in the 1977 survey - Wrong Comparison - Same as C

(E) twice the number reported in the 1977 survey - Number Compared to Number. - CORRECT.
