@maybeam: The use of 'a consumer' is generic and does not refer to one consumer but to all consumers. Therefore, the difference between 'consumers' and 'consumer' is moot. The correct idiom is 'think AS.' Just like that we can home in on answer choice (D).
Hope that helps
Here's how I eliminated the choices as I wasn't sure about the idiom: Think of X AS Y
(A) Consumers may not think of household cleaning products to bethem and they in the 2nd part may refer to consumers or products
(B) Consumers may not think of household cleaning products beingthem and they in the 2nd part may refer to consumers or products
(C) A consumer may not think of their household cleaning products beingtheir is the wrong pronoun to refer to consumer
(D) A consumer may not think of household cleaning products asthem and they can only refer to products now
(E) Household cleaning products may not be thought of, by consumers, asthem and they in the 2nd part may refer to consumers or products
Please let me know if my reasoning is correct.
hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.
