Official Solution:

Due to the intense summer heat in Shanghai, dress codes have been relaxed to such an extent that residents think of pajamas and other nightwear to be clothing appropriate for any place and time.

A. residents think of pajamas and other nightwear to be
B. residents think of pajamas and other nightwear being
C. a resident thinks of their pajamas and other nightwear being
D. residents think of pajamas and other nightwear as
E. pajamas and other nightwear are thought of, by residents, as


The original sentence contains an idiomatic error; think of X as Y is correct. Think of X to be Y is incorrect.

Choice D fixes this error without introducing additional ones.

Choices B and C retain this idiomatic error (think of X being Y is not correct.)

Choice E is passive and is less concise than choice D, and it is thus not preferable.


Answer: D

Can we exclude E also on the basis of SV agreement ? As passivity is not an absolute rejection criteria.

Like I think in option E it should be... pajamas and other nightwear are thought of as clothings (instead of clothing)

Thanks

Hello Bunuel,
Should the sentence be written with Because instead of Due to? As per my understanding we have the reason for "dress codes have been relaxed.." is this ok?
Thanks
