I think this one was discussed not too long ago.

"Alone" sounds better than "themselves"....the usage of "themselves" sounds like the trucks somehow walked itselves off the assembly lines..?

Yes it has to be B, since themselves is to be used self-reflexive. However that wouldn't match the meaning as TeHCM correctly says.

I would go with D. I think by themselves only suggests that the trucks just walked of the assemly line. themselves sounds fine. I don't like B because I think it compares the number of trucks of 1914 to the number of trucks of 1929.
