Since XYZ always requires present participle(as used in GMAT). Hence B and C are the two options. But C is more concise with the usage of more than double.

Thanx

C is correct. Since it uses present perfect tense to indicate that a prcess started since 1983.
Initially I also picked D, but realized that it does not use present perfect.

OA is C.
I understand why C is correct. But at the same time I can't find anything wrong with D. Can somebody tell me what is wrong with D?

When you use "since", perfect tense is better than past tense.

Is it OK to have since more than doubled (without the since then) ?
It sounds a but awkward to me, but I might be wrong.
Is that idiom correct?

Thanks

Yes, you can use "since" in that way. In such a context, "since" means "since that time" or "since then".

When you want to suggest that an action applies over a period of time, you should not use the simple past tense. The doubling occurred over the time period between "since then" and "now", and not at any specific moment in the past, so the perfect tense (specifically, the present perfect tense) is more appropriate. So you need "has doubled".

Two things:
increased more than double is redundant. S/b just doubled.
The use of ", and advertising" is wrong. Advertising by itself is not an independent clause, so ", and" cannot be used here.
Example: Claire likes ice cream, and she likes pizza. ", and" connects two independent clauses. It would be incorrect to say Claire likes ice cream, and pizza. However, you can say Claire likes ice cream and pizza.
