I would have paid twice as much (as I actually did pay) for my car if the salesman ....

Some words are omitted because it is obvious what they are. You can't add "as" without the phrase or clause that goes after it.

c is correct.

My car costs twice as much as my brother's. If you use as much as you need to compare it with another car.

Dear friend,

I think 'twice as much" mean double is the best choice because 'twice as much as" used when we want to compare this thing to another specific one. For example : I would have paid twice as much as it was/ previous car for my car if the salesman had insisted

I hope my answer will satisfy you.

Best wishes,

Maybe you don't realize it, but you are answering a question that was asked seven years ago, and the answer has already been given.

Why not answer questions that are more recent? That way there's a better chance that the person who asked the question is still participating on our forum and can benefit from your answer.
