>Charles Babbage is generally considered ____ the first computer.
> A. to have invented B. inventing C. to invent D.having invent
因為is generally considered是被動.
C的to invent雖也是不定詞, 但表示還沒發明, 不符語意, 故排除.

consider在被動語態be considered是個不完全及物用法, 後面必須要接補語才完整, 補語可以是形容詞、副詞、名詞等.

相對的, consider在主動語態如果所接的受詞語意不完整, 仍應接受補(OC), 同樣可以是形容詞、副詞、名詞等.
被動: They can be considered educated people. (省略to be或as)
主動: You can consider them educated people. (省略to be或as)
