E it is and yes, I understand the idiom being "view... as". I have not had time to look into this yet but I have some doubt regarding the idiom.
You can view X as +noun
However, I believe you view X to be +verb
For instance:
I view the GMAT score to be weighted between the verbal and math section
or
I view the GMAT score as weighted between the verbal and math section.
I believe the former could be good when we are talking about view+verb... I'll verify a bit later.

I agree with u Paul... E seems to be the correct answer. However, I couldn't really understand what are u implying by "You can view X as +noun" and "I believe you view X to be +verb ".

Are u saying that "view... as" is for noun and "view... to be" is for verb ?

Another vote for E. The original sentence has a idiom problem. and E corrects it as well as has the flow and is concise.

forget what I previously said Stern. Stick to "view.... as" as the right idiom

I think Paul is right in case of "view .....to be" where view functions as a transitive verb but this does not mean that in "view ...as" view is not a verb. View is a type of Vc (consider type of verb, the other one is Vg give type; they both fall under transitive verbs). For example "doesn't view himself as a rebel" here it is view as and view functions as a verb.

some view cult as a wrong religion.

view = two place transitive verb
cult = direct object
a wrong religion = a noun phrase

Soviet music critics consider the Rolling Stone to be decadent

consider = two place transitive verb
Rolling Stone = direct object

Americans don't simply consider Kaddafi, but they consider him a terrorist or consider him to be a terrorist.

Americans view Kaddafi to be a terrorist (wrong)
Americans view Kaddafi as a threat (correct)
Americans consider Kaddafi to be a terrorist (correct)
Americans consider Kaddafi as a terrorist (wrong)
Americans consider Kaddafi a terrorist (correct)

So I guess it is

consider ... to be
view ..... as

Masters should verify this.

A and D have comparisons issues. Only E, compares noun with another noun, i.e. Samuel with other colonists.
