I will go with A. The correct phrase is 'depicted ... as'.

B is not 'wrong', but on the GMAT the phrase 'to be' is generally frowned upon. So avoid where possible (like here!)

As Selene said the idiom is - depict as and not depcit to be
hence the answer is 'A'

Yes, as Professor explained, "being" is mostly wrong in GMAT. Moreover, it creates redundancy in E :)

B: to be almost always incorrect for the gmat
C: wrong verb tense
D: sounds weird to me
E: redundancy and -ing form is almost always incorrect.

hence, A is correct, simple and concise
