I would have gone with D but I know the OA is B.
Guys, any reason to eliminate D or B? Please explain.

(B) who might once have died in childhood
(C) that as children might once have died
(D) who in childhood might have at one time died
(E) who, when they were children, might at one time have died

D is wrong because it uses "in childhood" right after "who". B is better.

Would re-framing the choice D to:
who, in childhood, might have at one time died

make it a probable choice?

No, you still need // sentences as in B:
who might once have died in childhood...now live well into old age.

(A) wrong: Use of that is wrong
(B) correct: concise and conveys the intended meaning
(C) wrong: same as A
(D) wrong: modifier problem - incorrect placement of "childhood" which is supposed to modify "died"
(E) wrong: Too wordy

However I feel, to use "Once" with death is like .. you die many times ... once,twice...
Hence don't agree with B and C
