Confused between (B) and (D)
(D) seems correct because we need to show a time/period. 'Whenever' is the best usage.But again 'broadcast' is plural but we need a singular because we are using 'each'
(B) seems to be correct here with S-V agreement.

Would go with (B)

To me A, B and E made more sense.

dont like 'such' in A. Also 'each of the three...' should use broadcastS not broadcast. B has the same issue.

E is the one standing for me?

AD are out b/c "EACH" does not agree with "broadcast."

B = truly a mess
C = incorrect use of "if"
E looks best.

D is tempting but "each of the three major networks" requires "broadcasts not the plural "broadcast"

"each of the three major networks" is singular but the verb is broadcast so we need a plural subject. A & D are out.
B & C introduces an if awardly.

E is left. "three major networks each" is plural and agrees with the verb broadcast.

broadcast requires a plural noun
example:
they sing
she sings


"three major networks each" is plural
"each of the three major networks" is singular

A & D are out due to wrong quantity antecedent.

(A) superficial such as when each of the three major networks
correct Subject Verb Agrement is each... broadcasts

(B) superficial, as can sometimes occur if all of the three major networks
All implies that the networks are collaborating rather than operating individually. This changes the meaning of the sentence.

(C) superficial if the three major networks all
All implies that the networks are collaborating rather than operating individually. This changes the meaning of the sentence.

(D) superficial whenever each of the three major networks
correct Subject Verb Agrement is each... broadcasts

(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each
As means For instance/For example


small elaboration:
each is always singular unless it follows a plural noun.

I felt this question was very hard. Had to redo this question a few times. :evil:

I also had a tough time with this one, primarily, because I somehow felt 'as when the three major networks each' referred to a network 1 at a time...thus brodcasts should have been the appropriate verb....but I guess three major networks determins the plural nature here.......

Can someone elaborate on this pls???
