A. As part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling during the 1950s

Modifier issue. What is "as part of their therapy" ? young PV?? Nope

B. As part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live during the 1950s with their disabilities were helped to practice falling

Same as A & learning to live during 1950's is wrong

C. Young polio victims learning to live during the 1950s with their disabilities were helped to practice falling as part of their therapy

learning to live during 1950's is wrong

D. Young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling during the 1950s as part of their therapy

Awkward, one long sentence with out a modifier or dependent clause.

E. During the 1950s, as part of their therapy, young polio victims learning to live with their disabilities were helped to practice falling

Clear with a good modifier and good dependent clause

My ans E

You rejected A because "What is "as part of their therapy" ? young PV" but if you take a close look its the same construction in E i.e. "as part of their therapy, young PVs"

Nope its a dependent clause in E. Take out the dependent clause in E and read the sentence. It reads just fine
