By intuition, I guessed the answer as B.
Can you please elaborate your explanation.

As a result of the medical advances, many people that might at one time have died as children of such infections as diptheria, pneumonia or rheumatic fever now live well into old age.

a. that might at one time have died as children -- 'that' is incorrect
b. who might once have died in childhood
c. that as children might once have died -- 'that' is incorrect
d. who in childhood might have at one time died -- this basically means they died once in childhood -- nonsensical
e. who, when they are children, might at one time have died -- 'they are children' is not correct tense, this also mean they once died -- nonsensical

I use intuition 100%. rather than relying on rules that way its quick.

The SC is hinting three issues - parallelism, pronoun ambiguity (pointed out by dreambeliever) and style.
concentrate on one issue at a time.

sampling out B, D and E and focus on "who" (pronoun)
E - gone "when" is wrong. B Vs D.

focus on ||ism now.
|| of died is live
|| of childhood is old age

B is exactly parallel. D is not.

Between B and D

D has "one time", which indicates an attempt. whereas we need "once" to talk about past time.

So, B is better.

a. that might at one time have died as children
b. who might once have died in childhood
c. that as children might once have died
d. who in childhood might have at one time died
e. who, when they are children, might at one time have died


'people who' - eliminates A and C
D and E - seem to suggest that a person can die a few times during childhood. Death may knock a few times, but when it happens, it only happens once - be it during adulthood or childhood... :P
Thus, answer: B

A - "at one time" suggests rather one point in the past and the question speaks about a few illnesses. "Once" is a better choice because it means "in the past" and it does not suggest only one occasion or point in time but rather a period of time.
B - correct
C - strange word order and the wrong use of "that"
D and E - redundant, include "at one time" instead of "once"

But B say who died ONCE in childhood. Do u die multiple times? Therefore D, D is FLIPIT: who in childhood might have at one time died => who might have died at one time in childhood

Cut the flabs -

.................... many people...................of such infections as x,y orz now live well into old age.


People subject of sentence will definitely take Who hence options A and C rejected

a. that might at one time have died as children - Rejected due to that
b. who might once have died in childhood
c. that as children might once have died - Rejected due to that
d. who in childhood might have at one time died - Wordy ad awkward
e. who, when they are children, might at one time have died - Wordy ad awkward

Hence IMO (B)
