I guess C

consider A....B...is idomatic so (C) and (E) are left..

E has modifier problem-- though unavailable.. , Japanese .. implies Japanese are unavailable

Going with E here

C & E are close but went with E since it is a little more concise

I think E has a problem with the modifier because it seems like that most japanese are unavailable outside Yokohama.

C definitely wins this one :-D

Exactly. This one came down to A or C. A incorrectly uses the idiom consider as~

Clearly (C)

"Consider as"
"considered to be" etc....
are all wrong. "consider" is used bare.

Consider as is always wrong?

Atleast in GMAT. This is what I have read at many places.

Seems like you are partially correct Dahiya.

From Cambridge:

consider (OPINION) Show phonetics
verb [T often + object + (to be) + noun or adjective]
to believe someone or something to be, or think of them as:
He is currently considered (to be) the best British athlete.
We don't consider her suitable for the job.
[passive + object + to infinitive] It is considered bad manners in some cultures to speak with your mouth full of food.
[R] I consider myself lucky that I only hurt my arm in the accident.
Do you consider him a friend of yours?
[+ (that)] She considers (that) she has done enough to help already.

From Oxford:

consider + that = expresses an opion.

Neither source mentions "consider as" as an idiomatic possibility.

When we say always incorrect then it means ALMOST ALWAYS. In GMATLand, consider is ALMOST ALWAYS used bare.

Makes one wonder if GMAC is trying to standardize (in other words "brainwash") us all into thinking the same way...

I like E the best here, but it is a little strange since this tea is quite common. The rare Japanese tea would be Matcha, but all of these teas can be found on the shelves of tea stores across the world.

Two points:

1. How can most Japanese be virtually unavailable outside of Yokohama? Sounds like a oxymoron :roll:

2. Matcha is more ceremonial than it is "rare." Tencha would be the rarest (the leaf from which matcha is derived) and only if its powder were served in combination with kaiseki at a ichigen kotowari in Gion, Kyoto. But then again, I'm neither Japanese nor a student of the Iemoto grand master Sen no Rikyu. :wink: Matcha itself can be found abroad if you know your asian tea stores.

"consider to be" in GMAT seems always wrong....

but see this one:

In California, a lack of genetic variation in the Argentine ant has allowed the species to spread widely; due to their being so genetically similar to one another, the ants consider all their fellows to be a close relative and thus do not engage in the kind of fierce intercolony struggles that limits the spread of this species in its native Argentina.

A) due to their being so genetically similar to one another, the ants consider all their fellows to be a close relative and thus do not engage in the kind of fierce intercolony struggles that limits
B) due to its being so genetically similar the ant considers all its fellows to be a close relative and thus does not engage in the kind of fierce intercolony struggles that limit
C) because it is so genetically similar, the ants considers all its fellows to be a close relative and thus does not engage in the kind of fierce intercolony struggles that limits
D) because they are so genetically similar to one another, the ants consider all their fellows to be close relatives and thus do not engage in the kind of fierce intercolony struggles that limit

(D) is correct in this case. What Dahiya was trying to say is that "consider" is ALMOST always used bare. This is a rare exception. I have yet to find a grammatically correct sentence, anywhere, which uses the idiom "consider as~."

"consider to be" is used in all choices then there is no point in debating its use. In GMATLand, if we say ALWAYS then it means ALMOST ALWAYS. Thats why some one said "Use idioms as last resort."
