Is it C??
I feel we are missing "of" in the C.
Is it correct to say:

In the 1980’s the rate of increase of the minority population of the United States was nearly twice of what it was in the 1970’s.

Picking C.
In A and B, 'fast' is redundant as rate is already mentioned.

Small doubt.....

Aren't we missing "of" in C??

C is the OA...

Brajesh --- we are not missing 'of' in C.

it is very common English practice to say 'twice something'

A - rate of increase cannot be twice as fast (can only be twice or two times)
B - same as A
C - correct
D - same as A
E - same as A, for use of greater
