Consider X, y is the correct idiom to use.

Consider X to be y

consider X should be Y is all wrong thus taking out all the options A through D . Hence C.

A for me
Consider X Y is the correct idiomatic use, moreover, A maintain parallelism..X to print and Make available

IMO E

Idiom: Consider X Y is the one which is preferred in GMAT Land.

Mary Katherine Goddard was the first American printer to consider < the Declaration of Independence > < a document important to print and made available for the people >,in spite of the risks inherent in printing what the British called a "treasonable document.

X -> the Declaration of Independence
Y -> a document important to print and made available for the people

Below choices contain unnecessary preposition/words in between X and Y

Choice A : Consider X to be Y is wrong
Choice B : Consider X should be Y is wrong
Choice C : Consider X as being Y is wrong
Choice D : Consider X as if it was Y is wrong

Is there a typo in E

E.a document important to print and make available to the people,

Hi GMAT40

Nope, there's no typo here. E is correct. The structure of E is:
Mary Katherine Goddard was the first American printer to consider the Declaration of Independence a document important to print and [to] make available to the people,.....

You can avoid repeating preposition to make a sentence concise without any meaning changes.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. However my query was regarding "make" or "made". I did not select E because of "make" in the sentence.
Can you please clarify this doubt.

Many thanks

Hi GMAT40
Whenever you see "and", immediately look up parallel structure.

If you use "made" instead of "make" ==> parallel structure is: Mary Katherine Goddard WAS the first American printer to consider ...........and MADE available to the people...... ==> PAST tense || PAST tense.
Does it make sense though? Mary made available to the people.....?

Thus the correct parallel structure is: TO PRINT and TO MAKE.... However, you can omit the second "to" ==> the structure is "TO PRINT and MAKE" ==> infinitive || infinitive.

Hope it helps.

Thanks pqhai,

Indeed, I believe that lack of parallelism/meaning change would be a better reason to elimate choice (a) - and not idiom as some pointed out before.

Cheers,
