This SC is checking for parallelism.
who is the key.
B and D left. <--------
Using || it has to be B. ie live well into old age || died in childhood

live || died

By intuition, I guessed the answer as B.
Can you please elaborate your explanation.

a. that might at one time have died as children -- 'that' is incorrect
b. who might once have died in childhood
c. that as children might once have died -- 'that' is incorrect
d. who in childhood might have at one time died -- this basically means they died once in childhood -- nonsensical
e. who, when they are children, might at one time have died -- 'they are children' is not correct tense, this also mean they once died -- nonsensical

I use intuition 100%. rather than relying on rules that way its quick.

The SC is hinting three issues - parallelism, pronoun ambiguity (pointed out by dreambeliever) and style.
concentrate on one issue at a time.

sampling out B, D and E and focus on "who" (pronoun)
E - gone "when" is wrong. B Vs D.

focus on ||ism now.
|| of died is live
|| of childhood is old age

B is exactly parallel. D is not.

Between B and D

D has "one time", which indicates an attempt. whereas we need "once" to talk about past time.

So, B is better.

d. who in childhood might have at one time died
e. who, when they are children, might at one time have died


'people who' - eliminates A and C
D and E - seem to suggest that a person can die a few times during childhood. Death may knock a few times, but when it happens, it only happens once - be it during adulthood or childhood... :P
Thus, answer: B

A - "at one time" suggests rather one point in the past and the question speaks about a few illnesses. "Once" is a better choice because it means "in the past" and it does not suggest only one occasion or point in time but rather a period of time.
B - correct
C - strange word order and the wrong use of "that"
D and E - redundant, include "at one time" instead of "once"
