30. A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered as a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(A) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered as a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(B) Considered to be a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, genmai-cha is a special green tea that contains brown rice, virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(C) A special Japanese green tea called genmai-cha contains brown rice and is considered a gourmet delicacy by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(D) Most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea which contains brown rice, as a delicacy virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
(E) Though virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, most Japanese consider genmai-cha, a special green tea that contains brown rice, a gourmet delicacy.

I was confused between A and C .
Chose A because C has

" considered a gourmet delicacy" it should be " considered a gourmet's delicacy"

Please clarify it its a typo ....

Hi Shikhar,
Great set of questions by you.+1 Kudo for that
I was also confused between A & C .But there is a problem with A
it contains brown rice and is considered as a delicacy fit for a gourmet by most Japanese, though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama.
It is not clear what is virtually unavailable outside yokohama ,
whereas C removes this confusion completely.

The key takeaway is

From GMAT point of view, consider does not take a preposition. This means consider as, consider to be etc are all wrong.

maybe its just me, but the problem i see with C is the "it" is ambiguous==> though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama, what is "it" referring to? genmai chai or brown rice or japanese?

But, from GMAT point of view, both consider X Y and consider X to be Y are correct. Only consider as is wrong.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You are 100% right sakthicm. It is an idiom.
"Considered as" , "declared as" are wrong usage . Its consider X Y or Declare X Y.

A makes it difficult to point out what "it" refers to but C doesn't not. By this i got C.

Our official GMAT stance is:
RIGHT: considers X Y (e.g. I consider her a friend.)
SUSPECT: considers X to be Y (e.g. The judge considers the law to be unconstitutional.)
WRONG: considers X as Y. (e.g. The judge considers the law as (being)unconstitutional.)

The exceptions that would justify "as" are too rare and difficult for the GMAT to risk testing. There would almost certainly be some other grammar issues that would allow you select the right answer, but if not, play it safe and pick "consider X Y."
