considered to be superior to


Senior Member
It seems undeniably true that whoever has good relationships with those who have the power and authority is almost often considered to be superior to the one with better knowledge and skills.

In a multiple choice question, we are asked to find the wrong one. The key suggests "to be". However, I came across such uses many times before. Could you, please, explain it?

    In my opinion it is "almost". Because we would be more likely to say simply "often considered". The "to be" is correct.

    I agree with Pacoman. The to be is fine. We don't say "almost often" - so almost is the odd one out.
