    consider it no good doing something

    I consider it no good doing that again.

    Does this grammatically correct sentence sound natural to native speakers? Does 'It's no good doing that again' sound better? I found almost no result for the structure of 'consider it no/any good doing something' in google books.

    The original question I came across was:
    Do you consider it any good ______ again ?
    A to try B try C trying D for you to try (The given answer is C)
    What would native speakers think of this test question?

    It doesn't sound natural to me.
