The fact that life expectancy is much greater now then millennia ago is used as evidence that things have gotten better. The word "cited" works well here. However, if you take into account that most children died back then, you can argue that life expectancy has not changed. You are basically correcting for the fact that most people disregard most children died millennia ago, thus "correct" is a the right word.

Answer A and F

The meaning here is: if you CORRECT the statistics and not to read them you gain new insights into the childbirth.

read carefully the sentence.

Hope this helps.

A study or statistics are cited to reach some sort of conclusion. They are not embodied...embodied where ??

Hope this helps.

Average life expectancy ten thousand years ago was so much shorter than it is now is often cited as evidence supporting the notion that the world always improves with time. Focus on the word "negative/change"(However), if you correct for the fact that most children in that epoch died in childbirth, life expectancy for those who survived birth was nearly the same then as it is now.
