(A) sometimes considered to be the trier of questions of fact -- wrong: missing verb mistake

(B) is considered the trier of questions of fact -- wrong: subject "members" is plural and needs an "are" not "is"

(C) are considered the triers of questions of fact -- correct: proper subject/verb agreement and parallelism between jury and judge

(D) is considered as the trier of questions of fact -- wrong: subject "members" is plural and needs an "are" not "is"

(E) are considered to be triers of questions of fact -- wrong: lack of parallelism between jury and judge

Considered is correct, not ''Considered to be ''. (Idiom)

Members go with ''are'' (S-V agreement)

Answer C.

Official Explanation :

The main verb in the underlined portion of the sentence is is and its subject is members. As members is plural and is is singular, the two words are not in agreement, and since members is not underlined, is needs to be changed to agree with it. Eliminate (A), (B), and (D) for this reason.

Choice (C) correctly pluralizes trier to triers to make it agree with members, as well as change is to are.

Choice (E) introduces an improper idiom, adding an incorrect to be after the word considered, so (E) can be eliminated. The correct answer is (C).

(A) is sometimes considered to be the trier of questions of fact --> "members" is plural

(B) is considered the trier of questions of fact --> same as A

(C) are considered the triers of questions of fact --> correct

(D) is considered as the trier of questions of fact--> same as A

(E) are considered to be triers of questions of fact --> correct idiom: consider A B (not consider A to be B)
