I can reject A, B, C and D only on the basis of the idiom Consider X , Y.

Consider as and consider to be are almost always INCORRECT on GMAT. :)

I think credit for should work here. Ex - He got credit for the work I did.

I dont know which preposition is used with credit but the right idiom for consider is CONSIDER X Y so we can rule out A, B, C and D right away. Therefore, is credited with is an approriate phrase in this question.

Before anyone else get's confused with my post. Let me clarify. In haste, I quoted the incorrect error.
A,B,C,D have an idiom error as everyone has pointed out. Consider to be, Consider as being, and Regard to be are incorrect.
So, E is the only correct option.

The choices have a 2-2-1 split: (A) and (B) begin with “for,” (C) begins with “to have,” and (D) and (E) begin with “with.”

The correct idiomatic expression is “credited with,” so (A), (B), and (C) are all wrong. (D) is wrong because the correct idiomatic expression is “regard as,” not “regard to be.” Only (E) is idiomatically correct.

"credit for", "credit to" and "credit with" are all correct.

"consider X as Y" and "consider X to be Y" are wrong. Correct form is "consider X Y".

How the above is a stand-alone sentence?

Hi spbose ,

We are using the idiom consider X, Y.

Now, in the above sentence

X : her first and only novel

Y : the first science fiction story

Note that the noun "Frankenstein" is just the name of the first novel and is separated using two commas split. Hence, it is telling us just the extra information about the first novel.

Hence, the sentence is well written in its current form.

Does that make sense?

I didnt know that "to be" doesn't go with "regard" as well.
So "to be" is almost always wrong.
But I've seen "seem to be", "seems to be" to be correct is few questions. So "seems to be" is fine?

In gmat, the content of a question in SC is both an advantage and disadvantage to test takers. Put it simply, the content either causes distractions or gives the context that helps to eliminate wrong choices.

Please explain why isn't a helping verb needed to modify the the scholar's consideration. Because on a plain reading of option E, it looks as if the Frankenstein is getting modified.

you have made a great point.
My 2 cent, I do not see any flaw in E, and E seems the best option. I go for E. I think such modifier in E is normal in both formal gmat test, and informal English grammar.

Hi broall,

As per my understanding correct idiom is "credit with".

"Credit for" is used only when "credit" is not a verb.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
