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

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.
