Mike;

Something has gone wrong; probably it is a typo. As per your explanation , consider A B is the correct one and per se, E is the correct choice, But now you say consider A as B is correct and so C is the choice. . Why is the sudden change of heart?

Yes, yes, yes. Thank you, daagh. No change of heart --- I must have hit the wrong button when I posted this. Thanks for pointing out the error --- I have corrected it.

there is one question in gmatprep, in which "consider something as something" is in official answer. The takeaway is that "consider something as something" is not wrong but inferior. This means we can avoid it if there is another better choice.

I am sure there is that sentence in gmatprep.
