I do not have an OA for this

Two very easy decision points to get a correct answer.
First is to add an auxiliary verb to the original sentence and second is the usage of idiom consider X as Y
D) is the correct answer as it adds the correct auxiliary verb "was" and the correct idiom "considered the excessive sentiment in the poems in his first two collections"
