B. many people view Jeanette Rankin to be a role model because of her commitment to peace

C. Jeanette Rankin is considered as a role model by many people because of her commitment to peace

D. many people see Jeanette Rankin as a role model because of her commitment to peace

E. Jeanette Rankin is regarded by many people as a role model because of her commitment to peace


It should be E.

ABD - each has wrong modifier because "The first woman elected to Congress in the United States" - an absolute phrase- should be followed by Jeanette Rankin.

C has wrong idiom - "considered as ". "consider as" and "consider to be" both are wrong. The correct idiom is - consider.

However there are other problems with the wrong choices ABCD.

"Because of" is also least favored in GMAT but E has least problems. Therefore it is E.
