any more explanations for this one?



Unfortunately, oxon's explanation is complete. In the English the idiom is "regard as"

The church regards this area as sacred ground.
The tourists regard this district as the very soul of the city.
[passive voice version] The river is regarded as the most beautiful part of the county.


I cannot find a good list of English idioms on the 'net. If anyone knows of a complete list, then please post the address.

I think it should be 'B'. The 'ing' form should not be used.

A is correct ..


B and C are out since extent has different meaning than extend.

D to be an extension ..........cannot be used as the sentence is using comparison...

E to extend............does not make sense.

My choice is B.

Regard as is the correct idiom but we have to use //ism between airspace and extent. My reasoning is wrong if extending is used as a noun here ...

I feel the same way..

Could someone explain the difference between A and B?

Thanks!

can somebody explain why A is better than B?

I see one question from Kaplan 800 that might enlighten this issue:
Carthaginians are credited (with having salted) roman fields
Carthaginians are credited (with the salting of) roman fields

Kaplan explains:

With having salted is less passive then "the salting of". So the first option is better.

Can we make the same association?

as extending vs as the extent?

It is not passivity here, which is making a difference in your example.
It is the idiom 'credited with'.
credited with is always associated with -ing form of verb. Apart from ur example:
Eg: Edison is credited with discovering of the bulb.

For this question, even I couldnt find a proper reason. If anyone can shed some light, it will be great.
