(E) Regarded by publishing analysts as increased by international tensions during the Cold War, sales of the spy novel reached their zenith in the 1960s, when most Americans perceived the U.S.S.R. as


OFFICIAL EXPLANATION


The original sentence contains several errors. First, the proper idiom is "regard X as Y" not "regard X to be Y."  Second, the use of "the zenith" is awkward here when used in reference to the sales of the spy novel; sales reached "their zenith" would be preferable.  Third, the proper idiom is "to perceive as" not "to perceive like." 

(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence. 

(B) The modifier "regarded by publishing analysts to be increased by international tensions during the Cold War" incorrectly suggests that "the spy novel" has "increased"; the modifier should describe sales of the spy novel. In addition, "regard X to be Y" and "perceive X to be Y" are not the correct idioms.

(C) The modifier "regarded by publishing analysts as increased by international tensions during the Cold War" incorrectly suggests that "the spy novel" has "increased"; the modifier should describe sales of the spy novel.

(D) This sentence incorrectly refers to "the spy novel" as being "increased by international tensions during the Cold War."  The word "increased" must be applied to the sales of the spy novel.  

(E) CORRECT. "Sales" is correctly positioned as the subject of the opening modifier. Additionally, the phrases "regarded by publishing analysts as . . ." and "perceived the U.S.S.R as" are idiomatic.
