In 1978 only half the women granted child support

Post
In 1978 only half the women granted child support by a court received the amount awarded; at least as much as a million and more others had not any support agreements whatsoever.
(A) at least as much as a million and more others had not any
(B) at least as much as more than a million others had no
(C) more than a million others had not any
(D) more than a million others had no
(E) there was at least a million or more others without any


I see much is wrong in A and B. But if we had "as many as a million or/and more" then would option B be right?

If option B had said "as many as a million others," it would have been correct, though it would have changed the meaning. The sentence means to say "a million or more." "As many as" would mean up to a million, but not more.

It would NOT be correct to say "as many as a million or more."
