I will go with D

baby is singular so use "is" and older is better than more

(A) of four babies are now born to mothers aged thirty years or more, compared with just one of six born

(B) of four babies is now born to a mother whose age is thirty or older, compared to just one of six babies who were born

(C) baby in four are now born to mothers aged thirty or older, compared to just one in six

(D) baby in four is now born to a mother aged thirty or older, compared with just one in six

(E) baby in four is now born to mothers aged thirty years or more, compared to just one in six

Thanks

I think it's D.

1. 'one in four' - correct idiom
2. 'baby is born' - subject verb agreement (one baby is born)
3. 'aged thirty or older' - correct idiom
4. 'compared with' - correct idiom

Will go with (D).

Use "compare to" to point out an abstract or figurative likeness use "compare with" to consider likeness and differences in general.

"older" is prefered over "more" here.
