C, D, E are out because D and E uses two times instead of twice and twice what was... awkward

A wrong comparison comparing year with rate of increase...

B is the one
In B, it clearly refers to the rate of increase.

Yes, but when comparing rates, can they be faster or slower? dont they have to be higher or lower?

using this reasoning, i eliminated A,B, and D. Between C and E, i chose C because it is more concise.

Am i totally off???
