'like' cannot be used in this case, hence do away with C

B is awkward and distorts the meaning

; with such as - do away with E

Between A & D, D uses 'considered...as' - incorrect

Hence A

if as is used before critical then some thing is to be added after critical.

.....for war-prone countries considered advances in technology as (a) critical (factor etc) to their success in the event of a war.

Hello
We never use a comma before "and" for a list of items.
For example:
"X, Y and Z" is correct.
"X, Y, and Z" is incorrect.

Hope it helps.

I like apples,grapes,and pears. This statement is correct isn't ?

MG-SC says that whenever one sees 'and' after a comma, we should check for two possibilities :
1) a list (apples,grapes,AND pears)

2) Two main clauses (I like apples, AND she likes grapes

that is definitely wrong. that's the British way of constructing a sentence, which I have learnt. The GMAT way teaches you to list (A, B, and C) OR (A and B). I'm sure of this because this rule stood out to me too.
