A. many people regard Jeanette Rankin to be a role model because of her committing to peace

B. many people view Jeanette Rankin to be a role model because of her commitment to peace

C. Jeanette Rankin is considered as a role model by many people because of her commitment to peace

D. many people see Jeanette Rankin as a role model because of her commitment to peace

E. Jeanette Rankin is regarded by many people as a role model because of her commitment to peace

It should be E.

ABD - each has wrong modifier because "The first woman elected to Congress in the United States" - an absolute phrase- should be followed by Jeanette Rankin.

C has wrong idiom - "considered as ". "consider as" and "consider to be" both are wrong. The correct idiom is - consider.

However there are other problems with the wrong choices ABCD.

"Because of" is also least favored in GMAT but E has least problems. Therefore it is E.

And laso is 'regarded as' is right idiom?

The initial non-underlined part must immediately refer to JR.
A, B & E can be eliminated on these grounds.
C uses 'considered as' -> Consider X Y is the right usage of this idiom. No other forms such as consider as, consider to be should be used.

E
