(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.---Not proper construction of sentence
(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.---"is considered a" is wrong,,"considered as" should have been used
(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.
----Wordy construction

Looks "A" to me!!!

IMO C

I was able to narrow down the list to A and C. But after looking your response, now I can identify the reason for eliminating A.

A. Out for using "considered as". You cannot use "as" with "considered". "Consider X as Y" is incorrect idiom, the correct idiom would be "Consider X Y"
B. Awkward construction. Changes the meaning. Sounds as if "brown rice" is "virtually unavailable outside Yokohama"
C. Correct
D. Awkward construction. Changes the meaning. Sounds as if "Most Japanese" consider that the tea itself is "virtually unavailable outside Yokohama"
E. Awkward construction. Sounds as if "brown rice" is "a gourmet delicacy"

(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. -- The sub clause "though it is virtually unavailable outside Yokohama." seems to be modifying "Japanese", since it is placed next to it. That was the reason I thought E was better than C though "a gourmet delicacy" seems to be modifying "brown rice".

Can some one correct my understanding. A kudos for sure!!!

"C" is not same as "A". "A" and "D" are similar because both these options are using "consider...as" which is incorrect idiom.

it, in A and C, refers to A special Japanese green tea. In subordination the common rule is that the subject pronoun refers to the subject of the other clause.

Here is an example from the OG

while depressed property values can hurt some large investors, they are

Here they refers to depressed property values.

C.

"Japanese green tea" is the subject of the first clause. "It" is the subject of the subordination sentence.

In subordination sentences, "it" can correctly refers to the subject of the first clause.
