For GMAT do not use as and to be with "consider"

Consider means "regard as". So we cannot use as with consider.

Consider is a self-sufficient word
Considered as/Considered to be is just redundant
always use Consider or Considered alone w/o using the words as and to be with it.

We all use consider many ways and hence tackling "consider" by ear is never good.

The rule I've seen working is - To consider P,Q no preposition, conjunction, or fluff words after it.

the idiom is: consider A,B.
There is no comma in option C, how can that be correct.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. Both consider to be and consider (without as) should be OK. Please elaborate more on the explanation.
