Ok JB, I think I understand this SC now.

I just confirmed my understanding about "that" was incorrect. "That" cannot refer to people.
So we are left with ACs B,D and E.

(D) who in childhood might have at one time died
>>> implies the people actually died when they were children.
The SC means to say the people who might have died of these infections are now alive because of the medical blah blah.

(E)As a result of medical advances, many people who, when they were children, might at one time have died
of such infections as diphtheria, pneumonia, or rheumatic fever now live well into old age.
>>> I think this AC changes the meaning of the SC as well.

B is left.

This could very well be a IIlism question.

Hope this helps

Good question. I narrowed down to many people who...but then I selected E.

After reading answer I am guessing that using children in this context is incorrect. In their childhood makes more sense. I will wait for expeerts to reply more

narrowed down to B and E, B seems awkward as 'who once might have died' so E is correct.

I think it's the Modifier section where it discusses relative clauses. I don't have the book in front of me right now otherwise I would provide the page number. PM me if you can't find it.
