(A) After the Colonial period’s 50 percent mortality rate, life expectancy improved for children, but
== WRONG – should be “life expectancy for children improved” instead of “life expectancy improved for children”. And we cannot say “After … rate,”, instead, we can say “After the colonial period”.

(B) Even though children’s life expectancy, which improved over the Colonial period’s 50 percent mortality rate,
== WRONG – Let’s try to remove the non-restrictive clause. The sentence will become:
“Even though children’s life expectancy as late as the nineteenth century about one child in three died before reaching the age of six.”
Obviously, the sentence is wrong.

(E) Despite children’s life expectancy improvement from the Colonial period’s 50 percent mortality rate,
== WRONG – missing the before “children”. Also, we cannot say life expectancy improve from certain mortality rate. They are apply and orange.

(D) While there was an improvement in life expectancy for children after the 50 percent mortality rate of the Colonial period, still
== WRONG – Again, we can say “after the Colonial period”, but we cannot say “ after the 50 percent mortality rate”

(C) Although life expectancy for children improved after the Colonial period, during which the mortality rate was 50 percent,
CORRECT.

Ans is (C)
