How did you split between A and D.
In my view, both seems correct. But I cancelled D because of age+when.
"during an age" versus "at an age".

Is it because of "an age"? Probably an age is indicating a particular number; therefore, the use of during may be incorrect.

Kindly help to clear my doubts.

Even I have the same doubt. Both A and D seem legible answers.
I think during an age seems to suggest a time period as general rather than time in life of children. Anyway D seems short. I think because of shortness this is the answer.
What are your thoughts about it?
