B says: Ezra Pound considered late 19th-century American poetry not as a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, but

B is a typical example of colloquial english !! ----->u never consider X as Y ; u always consider X Y !!

Should be past tense so the verb "is" is incorrect in A. E doesn't use "but" to contrast Witman's and Pound and D does not use Ezra Pound after the clause ending with Witman to contrast the two view points of the subjects.

B and C are left and B is incorrect because it tries to use the idiom "not as... but as" but does not include "as" after but.

Answer is C.

B. Ezra Pound considered late 19th-century American poetry not as a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, but
C. Ezra Pound considered late 19th-century American poetry not a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, but
D. it was considered by Ezra Pound that late 19th-century American poetry is not a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, but -- same error as in A.
E. late 19th-century American poetry was considered by Ezra Pound not to be a distinct formal repertoire informed by its own ideology, and is -- idiom error.

I came across one official question in which "consider to be" is used in the right option - I shall revert back, if I get hold of that question again. It would not be wise to eliminate an answer because of use of "consider to be".
