A should be it.

"consider" is the correct idiom not "consider as".

Its A because of the idiom "considered"

For those wanting further clarity on this concept :

Correct : America is considered the largest economy of the world.
Incorrect : America is considered as the largest economy of the world.
Incorrect : America is considered to be the largest economy of the world.

Don't ask me why - its an idiom, just memorize it.

Now if we used regarded then the correct idiom would be "regarded as".

Correct : America is regarded as the largest economy of the world.
Incorrect : America is regarded the largest economy of the world
Incorrect : America is regarded to be the largest economy of the world.

Again don't ask me why, I'm just the messenger :)
