    consider; known

    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions:

    No.1

    He considered the whole thing immoral whether it was a psychological research or not.
    My question is: can I replace "consider" with "declare"? "declare" means he made it publicly known. Is that right?

    No.2
    The area is often ______ as Japan's Silicon Valley.

    a. known b. referred to

    The key is "b". No problem.
    "b" isn't correct because of the word "often". Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, it is right, as long as you realise that they have different meanings.
