the best is A

This question is not about the difference between "instead and rather than". It has more to do with the correct usage of regard and consider.

the correct idioms are.....

regard as

B contains regard to be, C & D contain consider to be and E contains consider as.....all are wrong....that leaves A as the answer......

as for the difference between instead and rather than, my personal experience tells me that more often than not, rather than is correct. I have hardly come across answers that have "instead" as the better choice........people may differ on this

I have also seen my times the idiom TO REGARD X AS Y.

consider + noun
rather than

Can anybody clarify it.

Three important idiom trick on GMAT Questions are

consider + noun
regard...as and
think of...as

is it inasmuch as or inasmuch that?

also is it regarded as an ally or regarded an ally?

i didnt choose a because it didnt have "regarded as" in the answer choice.
