A stands.
'regard sthing.....as ' is the correct idiom.

"regard as", so A and B survive

gerund "extending" describes airspace, so I choose A

when I see "extent" I want to see it used "extent to which"...

Shouldn't extending and boundary be ||??

Am I missing sth here??

doesn't have to be || here... semicolon indicates that these are 2 indep. clauses.

Regard .........As is the correct idiomatic structure.

Down to A and B for the idiom
regard X as

Then we need verb extending in the clause to give meaning not the adjective/noun.(as the extend)

If I focus on the relevant part of this sentence.
Then i will get only this as our original: Most nations regard their airspace as extending upward as high as an aircraft can fly.

Now as per your suggestion--> It should be: Their airspace extending upward as high as an aircraft can fly.
and not : Their airspace as the extent upward as high as an aircraft can fly.

Please tell me if you intended to convey this.

The word extent is some thing that can be used for some thing whose end is known. Here the sentence seems to suggest we dont know the end or we have no boundaries in the upward direction. So A is correct in using extending.

In short , Regard x as y is idiom

and extent is used when limits are defined here is no limit so extending

Regard as - correct idiom
Which leaves us with A and B
between A and B :
A) extending modifies airspace correctly
B)extent to is the correct idiom

So I'll go with A
