The sentence explains that the isotopes in the recently excavated bones of a 14-year old girl indicated what she had eaten and probably her class in society.

Option A - correct
it correctly explains the logical meaning of the sentence using the proper structures required by the sentence.

Option B - incorrect
This sentence explains that she was the daughter of a gentleman, AND not a maidservant (as if she was both persons at the same time).

Option C - incorrect
It has the same issue as option B. It also creates two separate persons for the 14-years old girl.

Option D - incorrect
This answer choice gives an incorrect representation of time on the sentence "she had not been a maidservant," which basically means she did something before she was a daughter.

Option E - incorrect
This option has an illogical past perfect form of the verb 'had been' after thereby and incorrectly uses the possessive at the end, creating a non-parallel structure that is incorrect.
