I go for C

B: says that life expectancy improved over the mortality rates, and not that it improved over the Colonial period
A, D and E wrong because they suggest that childrenâ€™s life expectancy improved from a starting point of a 50% mortality rate

C is the only one that clearly states that life expectancy improved after the Colonial period (in which mortality rates were 50%)

My choice will be between C and D..

I think C is not right because there should be some word before "as late as".. C sounds very abrupt when we consider the whole sentence.
D doesnt suffer from any other impairments and it has the word "still" at the end.. D sounds good to me.
