Because of "since then", we need "has doubled". So C is correct.

don't u guys think option C "Founded in 1983, the magazine has since more...." wierd & it is not clear what does "since" refer ???

What is wrong in option A. the only problem i see in option A is "than double since then" otherwise it looks perfect. So considering the choices we have i think A is best option.

what say ???

(B) has since increased its circulation more than double,
(C) has since more than doubled its circulation

'Since' needs the present perfect, because of the continous action, so that leaves us with (B) and (C). Furthermore you need to keep paralellism at the end two nouns, i.e. 'its circulation and its advertising', that leaves us in my opinion with (C). 'increase more than double' is unidiomatic, so I prefer 'more than doubled'. Best regards!
