I guess A is the "best answer" I originally thought B said "the number". Are we sure there isn't a typo?

elim CDE b/c themselves sounds like the trucks are in control of their own actions... i guess if were in the world of tommy the train or whatever.

AB I dunno here. I went for B... owell.

Can't be A...for several reasons;
first, "the numbers of trucks" is not correct; correct form would be "number of trucks"
second, "...twice the numbers" cannot be correct because we don't know what does twice THE numbers refers to??; it should be twice THAT numbers, "that" would imply 469,000 from the first part of 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
