+ numbers is incorrect.... in A
C, D and E imply that trucks came off the assembly lines themselves... funny

I will go with B as well. That is required to refer to the number of trucks and cars in the previous clause.

A. the numbers of tucks alone - use of numbers.
B. that number of trucks alone - fine for now
C. the number of trucks by themselves â€“ by themselves is wrong.
D. as many trucks themselves - fine for now.
E. as many trucks by themselves â€“ by themselves is wrong.

Between B & D. Iâ€™m not sure D does not fit well for SWE standards (IMO).

I pick B.

The idiom "as many as" is not completed in D and E

A - "the" is a definite article but does not specify a total count that is needed to complete the sentence.

In 1914 a total of 469,000 cars and trucks were produced in the United States, but in 1929 almost twice the numbers of tucks alone came off the assembly lines.

The correct idiom is "as many as"
D and E out

A) the numbers of trucks alone
WRONG :- twice of what number ?? we need a digit or a reference to a digit.

B) that number of trucks alone
CORRECT:- twice that number of truck alone ; twice of 4696000.

C) the number of trucks by themselves
WRONG:- "alone" , "by themselves" is redundant. Both means the same thing.

D) as many trucks themselves
WRONG IDIOM

E) as many trucks by themselves
WRONG IDIOM
