"1The Yangtze River is almost twice longer than the Pearl River.
It mean three times or two times."

Either the creator of the text made a mistake or you made a mistake.

Either: The Yangtze River is almost two times longer than the Perl River.
Would mean it is almost three times as long. Almost three times the length of the Perl River.

Or: The Yangtze River is almost two times as long as the Perl River.
Would mean it is almost two times the length of the Perl River
