put aside the "considered to be" rule. It appears in all the choices. :wink:

A & B: whom does not have clear antecedent
C : whose does not have a clear antecedent
D : modifier issue "considering" etc is modifying Aztecs.

Also between D and E. The split is considering / considered
E it is.

After scanning the answer choices left between answer choice D & E.

D has incorrect voice usage i.e. 'considering'.

Hence the correct answer choice is E.

+1 E

I'm not sure that "consider...to be" is a right idiom, but it is the best among the other choices.

Hey guys,

just before I tackled this questions, I came across this one:

Although she was considered among her contemporaries to be the better poet than her husband, later Elizabeth Barrett Browning was overshadowed by his success.

A, Although she was considered among her contemporaries to be the better poet than her husband, later Elizabeth Barrett Browning was overshadowed by his success.
B, Although Elizabeth Barrett Brwoning was considered among her contemporaries as a better poet than her husband, she was later overshadowed by his success.
C, Later overshadowed by the success of her husband, Elizabeth Barrett Brwoning's poetry had been considered among her contemporaries to be better than that of her husband.
D, Although Elizabeth Barrett browning's success was later overshadowed by that of her husband, among her contemporaries she was considered the better poet.
E, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry was considered among her contemporaries as better than her husband, but her success was later overshadowed by his husband.

where I learned about "consider" idiom. In this one, D is correct is all other answer choices use wrong idiom "considered as/considered to be," where apparently only "considered" is the right idiom.

The first question however neglects this issue. Is it because is is different kind of sentence and therefore different idiom should be used, or is there any particular rule regarding this idiom?

Please kindly explain the difference.

Thanks in advance.

Best,
Jay

"Consider .... to be" idiom has always been wrong in GMAT,, though this question maker has tried to check other things, missed to implement this in his question and answer choices. we should avoid such question types.

The idiom consider X without any other accompaniment is the only format GMAT accepts and it is one of the most frequently tested idioms. Can’t think of a practice question, which disregards that custom.

Doesn't option E change the original meaning of the intended sentence? In option A its nowhere mentioned that Aztecs named the two volcanoes..

If we go by the meaning call we can clearly eliminate options A,B and C
Among option D and E option D has incorrect use of ' considering '
So correct answer - E

Although E is the better of all options, however, the use of "to be" is not accepted by GMAT. It doesn't seem to be an official question.
