Clearly an idiom problem, consider as ... is wrong.

I would go for C as well.

C
"Consider as" and "consider to be" are unidiomatic .. so eliminate A,B,D..
E changes the meaning

Both A and C are correct, but C is in active voice and hence is preferred over A.

Consider doesn't require 'as' or 'to be'

Consider + Noun

So A,B,E - out

E - illogical modifier

Clear C.

C for me too.

Gotta watch for the "consider" idiom. That one used to kill me every time.

It is the green tea and not the brown rice which is unavailable outside Yokohoma.
