'like' cannot be used in this case, hence do away with C

B is awkward and distorts the meaning

; with such as - do away with E

Between A & D, D uses 'considered...as' - incorrect


Hence A

if as is used before critical then some thing is to be added after critical.

.....for war-prone countries considered advances in technology as (a) critical (factor etc) to their success in the event of a war.
