to regard is often used with presposition as. to regard as is idiomatically correct. so it should be 'he regarded himself as an ally'

'to consider' is a different case, it doesn't need prepositions.

so if we use 'consider" the whole phrase should be like 'he considered himself an ally', which is answer choice (C)


That's strictly IMHO, please correct if i'm mistaken

(A) as he regarded himself an ally, not

(C) as he considered himself an ally, not
(D) that he considered himself to be ally instead of(C)
(E) as he considered himself as an ally rather than

Please explain why answer is C .

(A) Remember the idiom "regard x as y". This option does not use the requisite as.
(B) This option is wordy and it states that Mohawk Joseph Brant literally considered the King's hand to be his ally. The intent of the sentence is to state that Brant considered the King and his people to be his ally, not just the King's right hand.
(C) Correct.
(D) Awkward construction and by using "that" the sentence contains an error similar to choice B.
(E) "Consider as" is not idiomatically correct. "Consider to be" would be a proper construction.

You regard "blah" as "blah"
You consider "blah" "blah".

So, here , you need to choose an option that says either
he considered himself an ally
or
he regarded himself as an ally

Clearly C) is the only correct answer.

The first idiom is “as much as”. “as much that” is wrong
The second idiom is “Consider X”. “regard” with out "as" is wrong

So Choice C

Agree, but what if in E we did not had "as"- as he considered himself as an ally rather than

does it make better option then ?
