A is the best choice for me.

B: 'than born' sounds awkward.
C: who were born? the women or the babies? not very clear.
D & E: just wrong.

i would go for B

D&E -- tense change --error

out of A,B,C -
option c - 'they' is ambiguous ....can refer to women ..changing meaning ....".......women over the age of thirty than they were under it.

out of A&B -
option A - lacks born req for ||el structure

hence option B
