I think C is correct the subject is The trip. So it should be used instead of they

E) being still considered a rite of passage


"consider as" is wrong. Eliminate D.

"they" wrongly refers to "The two-week hunting trip". "They" should be "it". Eliminate A and B.

Choice E makes the sentence awkward. Answer C.

A) they are still considered important rites of passage - Antecedent of THEY is Ambiguous. Is THEY referring to BOYS or TRIPS? Hence Incorrect.
B) they are still considered an important rite of passage - Antecedent of THEY is Ambiguous. Is THEY referring to BOYS or TRIPS? Hence Incorrect.
C) it is still considered an important rite of passage - CORRECT
D) it is considered as being important rites of passage - Considered AS is Idiomatically Incorrect.
E) being still considered a rite of passage - Use of BEINGS leads to a FRAGMENT error. Hence Incorrect.
