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 - a plural subject preceded by 'each' or 'every' makes the subject singular. The non-underlined word 'broadcast' suggests that the verb is plural and hence the subject should be plural....hence incorrect

(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 - when a subject precedes 'each' or 'every' the sentence takes the plural or singular subject (which is before 'each' or 'every') and accordingly has singular or plural verb.

for example:

Each of these shirts is pretty.

They are each great tennis players.

This is all written in page 31 of MGMAT SC book.

I would appreciate if somone can explain how "if" rule is violated in B and C.



Just a doubt here..

Each of <plural noun> followed by <singular verb>?

and

one of <plural noun> is followed by <plural verb> ??

you can just mug up this rule :
whenever
1.each/every
2.either/neither
3.one of the/the number of

whenever they are before the subject the verb is going to be always singular,and
whenever AND joins two subjects the verb is going to be always plural

hope it helps

[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
E


In my opinion E is the answer.Here the verb broadcast is plural .So the subject of the verb broadcast has to be plural.When sentence starts with each of,any of ,none of then verb will be singular.Thus we can eliminate A and D.
B and C are awkward.
If each places after noun then the verb becomes singular or plural according to the noun.Here in E" the three major networks" places before each and " the three major networks" is plural thus verb should be plural.
So E is the correct answer.

I was caught between A and E, but chose A :cry: :cry: :cry:

(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


On second glance, Subject verb agreement gets rid of A. Hence E is good. The statement is basically trying to give an instance of how the TV can be superficial.

A- S-V donot agree - broadcast is plural.
B - trying to compare so wrong
C - conditions apply - wrong
D - tries to deal with time -"whenever"
E - Correct - use of the conjunction "as" is trying to compare or illustrate the superficiality of TV.

Hard one for me :(
