Begun as late as middle age, a diet restricting calories but that provides all of the required nutrients can perhaps retard the age-related decline in a person’s ability to ward off infection and thus may prolong life beyond 100 years.

(A) Begun as late as middle age, a diet restricting calories but that provides all of the required nutrients
(B) Even if it is not initiated until middle age, a diet that restricts calories but provides all of the required nutrients
(C) A diet, even if not initiated until middle age, restricted in calorie content that provides all of the required nutrients
(D) A diet restricting calories but providing all of the required nutrients, beginning as late as middle age,
(E) A diet, beginning as late as middle age, that is restricted in calorie content but providing all of the required nutrients

OA is B.

'restricting' and 'begun' don't work together...different tenses...so A doesn't work.
'restricted' and 'providing' don't work together...so E doesn't work.
"restricted in calorie content that provides all the required nutrients"...'that' modifies 'calorie content'...so C doesn't work
"A diet...beginning"...should read "A diet...that begins" ... so D doesn't work.

therefore, B has to be the answer.
