Final Answer :
A
Explanation :
The sentence is punctuated correctly as it is a complete sentence with a subject (McLurkin) and a predicate (enjoyed building things). Additionally, the introductory phrase "All his life, however," is separated from the rest of the sentence by a comma, making it a dependent clause.
