    Yes, it is (B). 'as' acts here as preposition to join the noun 'boy' with the sentence. Convert the sentence to active form and you would be sure about it.
    His family took him, as a boy, on frequent hunting and fishing trips.
    The prepositional phrase 'as a boy' complements the object 'him' which refers to Ernest Hemingway .
