The portion in red in each sentence does not seem logical.

I go with E.

ritula, for such questions, logical meaning of the sentence is equally important.

In (A), "practice falling during 1950s" does not make sense. This means they were falling during 1950s only.
In (B), "live during 1950s" changes the meaning. This means they were learning to leave during 1950s only.
In (C), same explanation as for B.
In (D), same explanation as for A.

E is logically and structurally correct.
