    Greetings Iloveznz,
    I would choose B. D is understandable, but the final two words are not necessary. They add nothing to the meaning.

    A.1000 times more than--(you would need than)
    B. more than 1000 times
    C.more than 1000 times as
    D.more than 1000 times that of (Cuchuflete is right--you don't need the last two words....)

    ....Why you can't use it--I don't know--except that multiple choice questions usually only allow you one right answer--"D" might be correct, but with superfluous words--as was previously suggested.
