Is ' A' logical? The term ‘regard’ can be used in two meanings. The first one is that when we regard somebody we mean to say that we respect somebody. Second one, when we say regarded as, we mean to say we consider. E.g.: Franklin R is regarded as one of the best U.S Presidents ever.

The ‘regarded’ can be done only after some time or at the end of a tenure. You can’t pre-emptively say he will be highly regarded as at the beginning of a new role. So A is unlikely to be a logical expression. C is the only logically befitting one, in which, ‘is regarded’ is meant to say ‘is expected’

Is e supposed to have "hold" or is that a typo? Holding someone in high regard (without an s) makes sense... Where is this q from?

Re c - regarded to sounds plain weird - will you ever say: my friend is regarded to do well in the exam. Instead of expected to do well?

A and B are wrong because ‘[color=#0000FF]will regard’[/color] and ‘will be regarded’ are more definitive than speculative
B and E use ‘regards’, a plural noun, which is wrong in the context
In D, ‘is to be regarded’ is unidiomatic and more authoritative than expectative

In option A, the role at the end of the sentence is wrong.
Someone is regarded as something not for some role.

The general rules governing the use of the words "Regard" and "Regards" (often confused and at times confusing!)

1) "Regard to" or "In Regard to" -- are correct
2) "Regards to" or "In Regards to" -- are incorrect expressions
3) As Regards -- is CORRECT and in this case of course is used as a verb
4) With Regards or Regards -- used as closing phrases in letters (Noun)

That said -- this question does not seem to have a correct choice.

Choice A makes no sense -- The former president will be highly regarded as the Fed Chairman (Not role -- !)

Choice A as written is incorrect.

Choice B -- incorrect usage

Choice C and D are obviously wrong

Choice E -- wrong verb (should be held -- not hold)

So does it mean that this question is dead wrong? Will somebody confirm is there is a correct choice?

A is wrong. President (person) regarded as role? This is like wrong comparison. President & "new federal advisor" is good. president & "new federal advisor role" wrong.
