His earnings were only half the amount___.
A: as they used to B: they used to be.

What's the want? If B is right I can say "His earnings were only half the amount (that) they used to be". The "that" in bracket is omitted. Am I right?

Hi
His earnings were only half the amount___.
A: as they used to B: they used to be.

Though I myself am an English learner, I'm sure B is right.

You might be right to think "that" is omitted
but I myself think the relative is the "zero relative".
