Fill the omitted section:

According to public health officials, in 1998 Massachusetts became the first state in which more babies were born to women over the age of thirty than to women under it.

As in : In the party, more candies were given to X than to Y.

None of the options other than A fit in. We don't need to repeat babes/candies or born/given. We are comparing Women Above age 30 and Women Under Age 30.
