(A) people retain beyond childhood the ability that
they can produce
(B) people retain beyond childhood the ability to produce
(C) is the ability of people retained beyond childhood to

I go with C.
THE PARALLESIM OF NON-UNDERLINED PART GOES WELL WITH the starting of ''do peopl ...,
that eliminates chioces A B n c.
between D n E , d is not paralle,''producing''
E suits the best! comments ?
The presence of ONLY requires subject-verb inversion. Therefore, A and B are out. We stay with C, D, and E.
C offers a passive and splitted construction. Out.
IMO: It is more idiomatic to say AN ABILITY TO DO than to say AN ABILITY FOR DOING.
So, I go with E.
