A. in the way that older eaglets might be separated from them
B. in the way that older eaglets might be
C. such as in the way that older eaglets might be separated
D. as in the way that older eaglets might
E. as in the way of older eaglets

IMO B.
In C, "such as" and "in the way" is redundant.
In E, "in the way of.." implies that we are talking about a path. Illogical
In A, this has resemblance to "meaning issue". We are talking about the separation from "A" parent, so "them" can't refer to "a parent". Hence, it illogically implies either newly hatched eaglets or older eaglets. Eliminate it.
In D, "as" and "in the way" are redundant. Also "be" is missing.
B is the best option in my strong opinion.

A. in the way that older eaglets might be separated from them - Pronoun ambiguity with "them" eaglets cannot be separated from a parent- so you cannot use "them" to refer it to a parent.
B. in the way that older eaglets might be - Looks okay to me
C. such as in the way that older eaglets might be separated - such as is used to introduce examples. Eliminate.
D. as in the way that older eaglets might - Doesn't even make sense . might what ?
E. as in the way of older eaglets- - "of older eaglets" awkward construction.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
B
.

Whats the OA ?

Newly hatched eaglets cannot be separated from a parent in the way that older eaglets might be
separated from them

Now B says : in the way that older eaglets might be

Look at the restructured sentence once more :

Newly hatched eaglets cannot be separated from a parent in the way that older eaglets might be

We see a very parallel comparison being made over here if you notice carefully.

Newly hatched eaglets are compared to older eaglets and the intended meaning is also split clear. Newly hatched eaglets cannot be separated in the same way as older eaglets might be ( read separated )
