George Sand (Aurora Lucile Dupin) was one of the first European writers to consider the rural poor to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these with sympathy and respect in her novels.

(A) to be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these

(B) should be legitimate subjects for literature and portray these

(C) as being legitimate subjects for literature and portraying them

(D) as if they were legitimate subjects for literature and portray them

(E) legitimate subjects for literature and to portray them

https://www.nytimes.com/1988/07/17/books/more-than-the-sum-of-her-sex-life.html

Beyond this, she was a thinker. She probed the sources of conflict and injustice and isolated one: the need of an elite class of males to dominate all other human beings. Far in advance of her age, she recognized that this need was grounded in lack rather than in power. She created images new to literature, of love between people of different classes and backgrounds, of worthiness in the poor. She was probably the first European writer to consider the rural poor as legitimate subjects for literature and to portray them with sympathy and respect. In fact, these portrayals inspired a wave of revolutionary thought and feeling in the French-speaking culture of Russia. She vividly depicted the oppression of women in marriage and the cruelty and absurdity of religious authority and class domination. She went further: she was deeply involved with the 1848 revolution and, as its unofficial philosopher, produced essays and position papers dealing with socialism, the prejudices and fears of the rich and the need for what we would now term complete participatory democracy.

Q from OG 11

George Sand was one of the first European writers to consider the rural poor to be liegtimate subjects for literature and portay these with sympathy and respect in her novels.

1. to be liegtimate subjects for literature and portay these
2. should be legtimate subjects for literature and prtry these
3. as being legtimate subjects for literature and portraying them
4. as if they were legtimate subjects for litreature and portray them
5. legtimate subjects for litreature and to portray them


Rule:
1. Considered - use always
2: considered as - use never

That leaves B and E.

E is parallel.

So rules used here are

use Consider A B
avoid Consider A as B
Consider A to be B

the other one is parallelism

hence IMO 5

Correct answer is E.

It says in the guide that when consider means think or believe after careful deliberation it does not require as or any other epression before the object.

Thanks all.

Consider A B is correct usage. Hence E is correct. E is parallel too. Hence the answer.
