A seems to be the best option.

Parallelism

Deborah Sampson,..., joined.. at the age of 22, was injured... and was discharged....

Option B - 22, was injured... , while being discharged - illogical
Option C - 22, injured... and was discharged, being
Option D would have been correct if it was just "22, injured ... and discharged"
Option E - 22, having been injured....... and discharged, being

A

B, D, and E are out.

You need the perfect past as the time when she became ill precedes the time when she was discharged.

The most important thing here is parallelism.

joined.. at the age of 22, was injured... and was discharged....

It is also important for Verb Tense. She had to be ill first before being discharged.

Hence A

A is the correct answer. A and D are similar choice except that in D it states that she was ill. But given the sentence, she was discharged because she was ill. Does't make sense... she should have been discharged earlier. So she was discharged when she had become ill
