IMHO "learning to live with their disabilities" is preferable to "learning to live during 1950 with their disabilities" - the latter creates ambiguity in meaning.

So (B),(C) are put.

I also think that the sentence shouldn't start with phrase "As part of their therapy", because it's unclear, who are we talking about - noun "polio victims" isn't introduced yet. (A) is out as well as (E)

(D) is left. I don't see any clear grammar or meaning errors in it.

(A) As part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling during the 1950s
Correct. They refers clearly to the young polio victims as this follows they immediately!

(B) As part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live during the 1950s with their disabilities were helped to practice falling
young polio victims should be along with the practise part.

(C) Young polio victims learning to live during the 1950s with their disabilities were helped to practice falling as part of their therapy
(D) Young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling during the 1950s as part of their therapy
(E) During the 1950s, as part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling

For C, D, E ....I dont find them better than A....

IMO A....... OA pls?

What Do you think abt D option?

My ans is E
I think this is about misplaced modifier .
In A,D, it could be interpreted that the falling occured during the 1950's. Therefore, it is incorrect.
On the other hand, in E, the choice avoids the misplace by moving it in front of the sentence so that it acts as the adverb of "were helped".

Except E all other option have misplaced "during 1950". Meanings are changing in other options.

I would pick (E) because the modifiers are misplaced in other options.

IMO E, the modifier "during the 1950s" should be used to convey that the therapy was implemented at that time .

In other options , it sounds like they "practised to live during the 1950s" or they were "learning to live during the 1950s" , which distort the meaning.

"E"
(E) During the 1950s, as part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling

polio victims practice falling, so that they could learn to fall without being hurt. End of the sentence modifies "practice falling" and not the "time" or "therapy"

E is the correct choice.

All other choices distort the intent/meaning of the sentence.

(E) During the 1950s, as part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling

I fell for D.

Can somebody tell why E is correct?
doesn't the part "During the 1950s, as part of their therapy, young..." introduce a double modifier?

Thanks,
Vivek
