Nope,
C is not the official answer.

Any other ideas?

I also ruled out A D & E b'coz of the word each which does not match with the plural verb broadcast.

Out of B & C...i think B is the correct one.
B gives a situation where television may seem to be superficial...whereas in C saying that it is superficial if the three major networks.....does not seem to be coreect!!

Well that was my reasoning to arrive at the ans....i go for B!!

what's the official ans. ?

Probably there is a mistake.

as when the three major networks each broadcast exactly the same statement. EACH spoils this option. IMHO: it makes sense without EACH and a superfluous comma:

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

I did not rule out any of the choices because of each. I think 'each' could take plural verb depending on its position;

In choice E:Following the plural subject, 'each' comes just before the verb 'broadcast'. Correct
But, I doubt the use of As when. Any idea?

(A) superficial such as when each of the three major networks
(B) superficial, as can sometimes occur if all 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


Choice C is wrong because it shows the unintended meaning that express the example (as choice E stated) of the superficial function of TV. Moreover, the condition IF always go with THEN. IF the 3 major network..., THEN TV can be superficial is totally awful.

In choice E, the three major networks each = plural
each of three major networks = singular
=> choice E is still matched the S-V agreement.

The intended meaning of the text is that when all the three works, though each functioning independently, still choose to broadcast the same statement, then they cannot be said to delve into the issues, but simple dabble.

The point is that all the three may not be doing the act in collaboration. This is where B and C fall by the way, since in these choices, they seem to be doing the act together rather than independently

In E however, the real subject is the three major networks and each is rightly added to emphasize that they all do the act free of others

Hi all
@ Tuang: I am not sure whether ' then' is imperative in conditional sentence.

But, I read in a certain GMAT material that we should not use 'can' in conditional statement. Any idea?

@Daag: Is meaning an issue here? Does 'all' imply collaboration ? It only gave me the impression that all of them participate in the activity, whether independently or not.

Yes. I feel so; when an issue is covered from diverse angles by independent dissection, then it may be called delving. If all of them depict one version, why are three networks required at all? Hence, independence is in-built in the passage IMO.

Although it alters the original meaning, I chose C and rejected E because I am not sure about the use of "as" (and not "such as") to introduce examples. Need some help to understand why E is correct.

Re: Although it claims to delve into political issues, [#permalink] New post 24 Jan 2013, 01:53
Ans B
When used alone as a subject, each or all is singular so out C and E
When used with a of-prepositional phrase, each or every is singular so out A and D
When used with a of-prepositional phrase, some, any, none, all or more/most is singular or plural depending on of-prepositional phrase. Plural/singular Of-prepositional phrase => plural/singular
Only B respect this rule.
Hope that help.
