Acc. to me, C is better as C states the meaning in a simple and concise manner.
Also in D, meaning has changed a bit. D states that the fact that the no. of degrees awarded doubled is in the past and might not hold now .. whereas C states the same fact in simple present tense .. meaning that it was true yesterday, it is true today and will be true in the future ..
