    應選(C)!considering 在這裡其實比較像一個介係詞的用法,表示"就....而言",或"考量到,考慮到...."的意思!Considering a parliamentary system (就國會制度來看), the prime minister must be appointed on the basis of the distribution of power in the parliament.considering在這裡不是分詞片語的結構,否則翻譯出來的意思會變成是: "首相考慮國會制度,首相必須以...基礎下被任命"---如此便成考量國會制度的人是首相,可是首相是被任命的人,他本身沒有主動去考量的權利,所以considering再這裡不是分詞片語而應該只是一個介係詞而已!

    To be considered 我覺得也通,這時consider是表示"認為"的意思:為了要被視為是一種國會體制(此為解答所說的不定詞表目的),首相必須以...被任命!但其實considering我也不覺得有錯!不知你這道題目是打哪一本書來的?

    答案是C

    因為是分辭構句阿

    前面的主詞也是prime minister

    連接詞去除又因主動

    所以這樣ㄚ
