    more than tripled

    __________ in universities around the nation has more than tripled compared to this time last year.

    A. enroll
    B. enrolls
    C. enrolling
    D. enrollment

    Key: D
    I understand the question and agree with the key provided. However, there is one problem I still cannot figure out.

    has more than tripled => has increased more than tripled
    Is this right? Or has more than tripled is enough. If it is, please explain.
