Hi Guys,
I am not sure where pick which one among twice/two times/double.Can you please help me out.

Also can some one tell me what's wrong with the below sentences.

The amount of money i have is twice of what you have.
The amount of money i have is twice that of yours.
The total money i have is double of that you have.
The total money i have is double of what you have.

i believe i can use all there with countable nouns also. please correct me if wrong.

there are questions in gmat with options using twice two times double . is there any way to eliminate the wrong ones.

Broadly, this is the difference between twice and double:

Twice = Adverb - modifies verb, adjective or another adverb
Double = Adjective - Modifies noun
