regard as is the correct idiom...narrows down to A and D.

D is a run-on phrase and very wordy. A is proper by using a modifier and second only is correct while only second is incorrect.

A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As far as I know, regarded to be is never correct

"being" is rarely correct, especially when all other options consist of a major error and "being" is the only awkward part of one of the options, then "being" can be okay.

A is the answer.

As far as 'regarded to be' is concerned, I am not sure if it's wrong but it sounds wrong.

I know 'considered to be' is correct, which is why I cannot be certain if 'regarded to be' is correct or not. Usually, 'regarded as' is used in sentence constructions.

OA is A.

the correct idiom is regard as...
regard is always with an as.
regard to be is always wrong
WRONG: Danny is regarded as being the greatest boxer of all time.
