A - "each of.." takes a singular verb, but "broadcast" is plural
B - "can sometimes occur" changes the meaning + "all of" isn't OK,
C - the most consise + the subject is plural
D - again "each of.."
E - non-grammatical ?

I choose C - (might be E)

Make a special note: IF is almost always WRONG on the GMAT SC, unless the sentence is conveying a hypothetical/conditional tone.

Matt correct me, if I'm wrong

The three major networks each broadcasts ---- right

THe three major networks broadcast -- right.

I personally feel B is wordy but right usage.

C is also having better SV agreement .

I will go for B or C.

If "each" is used before the subject, then it is singular. If "each" is used after the subject, it has no bearing on the verb. (It can be plural)

Each of the students wants a burger
The three major networks each are good

Guys, pl. correct me if my explanation is wrong

Going for E here..
I second rnachloo's explanation.
I remember the tricky use of each, w.r.t the subject.

"can sometimes" in B is redundant.

I meant to say broadcasts, which is singular, not plural.

Nice catch!

This is E for sure.

"each of plural" takes singular verb
but when each follows some plural verb then "each" has no bearing on the verb and verb will be according to the subject that is preceding "each".
