B....imo

2nd verb is not required i think.
if we were to use a 2nd verb then we would need a "that"

no one considered (that) the management (was )well-organized

neeshpal,

Thanks.

if "was" is used then we are considering "the management" as subject but subject here subject is "no one" . If we were to use "was" then we need something that introduces a new clause (a subject and verb) and "that" will be used to introduce that clause.

Also there is an idiom "Consider X Y" and is used without "to be" in contrast to "consider X to be Y".

"Declare XY"
"Make XY"
"Assume XY"

Hope this helps .. + 1 B

You seemed to be a network engineer :-D

'declare' can be used with 'to be'
