its blind D. donot even pay a single second to any other ACs.

quick tip: when a question has considered, the correct one is the one that has "bare consider (or considered)".

"consider as, consider to be, consider being" are always wrong.

"considered" don't need "as" or infinitive or "to be" etc.

Agree with you 100%... Learned this couple days back... really a HUGE help to eliminate wrong choices and is very often used on GMAT!!!

D is 100% correct
