First split: consider X Y. anything that has "as" or anything else in front of consider is incorrect. So AD is elim. both use as. (D is a bit deceptive with the as, but its incorrect)

B: awkward. delicacy fit for a gourmet... virtually unavailable outside yokohama doesnt appear to refer to the correct noun.
E: E is illogical. Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama... most Japanese??? Thats like saying Though virtually unavailable outside New York, most New Yorkers...


C is the best. Consider XY properly used. The illogical reference exibited in E is eliminated by the pronoun usage of it in the last phrase.

So what does "it" refer to in C?


Hi There,

The pronoun "it" in choice C grammatically and logically refers to "A special Japanese green tea". Pronoun "it" is the subject of the dependent clause that starts with "though". Because "it" is at the subject place, grammatically it will refer to teh subject of the preceding clause. The subject of the preceding independent clause is "A special Japanese green tea". Logically also, "it" refers to genmai-tea as the contrast presented by "thpugh" is about this tea only. Although the tea is considered "delicacy", it is only available in Yokohama.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Shraddha

C for me too.

A delicacy fit for gourmet just sounds awkward to me. So A and B are out.

D is out, as the fact of availability isn't likely to be what Japanese people consider.

E is also somewhat odd in implying that the fact that Japanese consider the tea a delicacy is in SPITE of it's availability being limited.

I will go with C


B. it seems brown rice is virtually unavailable outside yokohama
D. It says that most japanese considered it a delicacy not available outside yokohama. unconvincing
E. it seems most japanese are virtually unavailable outside Yokohama

Between A and C, choose later as considered a gourmed delicacy is concise and idiomatic.

C is the best of all. Yes, the correct idiom is Consider XY, ("consider to be","consider as" are incorrect).
Does the same rule apply for "Considered"?

C is best. ABD has wrong idiom "consider as/to be". E has wrong modifier.

In the following option
C) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered a gourmet delicacy by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.

In the above option is "it" referring back to the tea or the brown rice?

Yes it is. Japanese people would be referred to as "they" .....

Also not the usage of idiom "consider".

(E) Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea that contains brown rice, a gourmet delicacy.

a. is awkward ,sounds as if delicacy can be eaten only by gourmets
b and d ,modifier seems to modify brown rice
e modifier seems to modify japanese

(A) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered as a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(B) Considered to be a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, genmai-cha is a special green tea that contains brown rice, virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(C) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered a gourmet delicacy by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama. lets keep it,though using it is doubtful ,but no other error
(D) Most Japanese consider genmai-cha, [a special green tea which contains brown rice], as a delicacy virtually unavailable outside Yokohama. remove bracketed part and then read. "consider as" is wrong
(E) Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea that contains brown rice, a gourmet delicacy. misplaced modifier."most japanese" are not virtually unavailable it is green tea thats virtually unavailable.

So the only option that best fits is option C.
