Go with D.

IF is wrong since there is a choice. IF is used for hypothetical.
Skipped BEING -is always wrong for GMAT. E is wrong because of a pronoun issue.

Consider X Y and usage of whether ... therefore 'D'

Consider to be and Consider as - Both are no no in gmat .
E is awkward .

D stands.

Walker... as per me.. the deciding factor could be the usage of 'if' and 'whether'. When ever we try to compare two things, I guess we should use 'whether'. The question here actually does.... whether X ... (or Y part has been left out)

Hence we need to choose among C,D,E.... and among them, D is the best... C is out for the being word.. and E introduces a pronoun they which isnt necessary at all!

'consider to be' and 'consider x->y' , and the usage of whether , both make D the right answer.

Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).
