Legend has it that when the Mohawk Joseph Brnat was presented to
George III in 1776,he proudly refused to kiss the king's
hand,inasmuch as he regarded himself an ally, not a subject.
(A) as he regarded himself an ally,not
(B) that he regarded himself to be an ally rather than
(C) as he considered himself to be ally instead of
(D) that he considered himself to be ally instead of
(E) as he considered himself as an ally rather than

Please help me to understand the cases that use "instead" and "rather".

the best is A

This question is not about the difference between "instead and rather than". It has more to do with the correct usage of regard and consider.

the correct idioms are.....

regard as
consider + adjective

B contains regard to be, C & D contain consider to be and E contains consider as.....all are wrong....that leaves A as the answer......

as for the difference between instead and rather than, my personal experience tells me that more often than not, rather than is correct. I have hardly come across answers that have "instead" as the better choice........people may differ on this

is it inasmuch as or inasmuch that?

can someone explain?im still not clear about the answer choice.

also is it regarded as an ally or regarded an ally?

i didnt choose a because it didnt have "regarded as" in the answer choice.
