'Regard as' is the correct idiom.

Consider (without the 'as') is the correct idiom. Correct sentence using consider:

Many scholars consider the pre-Hispanic civilizations of Peru (NO AS) the most impressive in South America.

"Consider + as" is always considered wrong in GMAT.
"Regards + as" is correct idiom.

(E) consider the pre-Hispanic civilizations of Peru as

classic question

CONSIDER + noun
CONSIDER (never followed by THAT)
CONSIDER (never followed by TO BE)
REGARD + AS (ALWAYS with AS)

I'd choose A.

Regard...as
Consider...to be

This might be helpful in solving this:
Idioms-
Consider x y (no “to be”)
RIGHT: I consider Mark my friend.
WRONG: I consider Mark to be my friend.
Regard as
Correct: We regard him as part of the family.

Hence (A) seems correct.
