IMO C (Best possible choice)

D & E are wrong : 3 times as much as is not same as 3 times more than , i.e., say x = 100. 3 times as much as x is 300 and 3 times more than x is incomplete - 3 times of what, let's assume if 3 times of x more than x then also it is 100 + 300 = 400. Meaning of sentence is changed.

B: Idiomatic usage : "as much as" is required, and "of" preposition is missing - 3 times of what

A: Tiny trucks line did ==> sold

Sold is more clear than did.

Ideally the parallel structure should be:

The Dancing Doll line sold :
