Hi guys,
The question may be:

In 1990’s, there are more babies born by women over thirty years old than under it.
(A) than under it
(B) than were they under it
(C) than had been under it
(D) than were the babies
(E) than those are under it

A looks to be the best option....

this one is really strange, but when you compare the options A looks the best, becuase in E those needs to be modified to eliminate ambiguity, what is those referring to babies or women?
But I have to say I really doubt the construction of the sentence.
In A if replace it with thirty years old the sentence would say ( In 1990’s, there are more babies born by women over thirty years old than under thirty years old)
in E if you place the pronouns with the logical antecedent that sentence would say:(In 1990’s, there are more babies born by women over thirty years old than WOMEN ARE UNDER THIRTY YEARS OLD)= gibberish

A is best. All other options are wrong.

In 1990’s, there are more babies born by women over thirty years old than under it.

(A) than [by woman] under it [thirty years old].
(B) than were they under it
(C) than had been under it
(D) than were the babies
(E) than those are under it
