Although it claims to delve into political issues, television can be superficial such as when each of the three major networks broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

(A) superficial such as when each of the three major networks

(C) superficial if the three major networks all
(D) superficial whenever each of the three major networks
(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each


What's wrong with c?
I looked up this question and found some people said c had a meaning issue.

But I can't see any meaning issues. :cry:

Is there anyone who can explain what's wrong with c in terms of meaning?

+1 for E.

C has meaning issues. C uses "if" to indicate the presence of if-then conditional. C suggests that the television can be superficial only when all the three networks broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

The original intent is to give an example of superficiality and not suggest when it can occur.

In the construction "each of the three major networks" each is the subject. Each is singular, so the verb has to be singular... but it isn't. The verb in A is "broadcast," which is plural.

In E, they move each - that one says "the three major networks each." Now, networks is the subject, and networks is plural, so the verb has to be plural... and it is!
