KAPLAN OFFICIAL SOLUTION:



Correct Choice: (A)

Sentences like this one, with its complex introductory phrase, can be intimidating, but there’s nothing wrong with the original version: the introductory phrases correctly modify the sentence’s subject — the Baby Boomers.

Choice (B)—changing“having seen” to “seeing”—alters the time sequence of the original: the Baby Boomers’ children are not presently going out into the world; they have already gone out into the world.

Choice (C) needlessly complicates each modifying phrase with improper inversion of the word order and a switch to the passive in the second.

Choices (D) and (E) inappropriately introduce the idea of contrast. The author is actually saying that, because they have taken care of these other things, the Baby Boomers now have more money to spend than they previously did, not although or despite.
