For me, it's a toss-up between C & D. I think C is still the better choice. So C for me.

What's the OA?

D is wrong because "each of the three" is singular, while broadcast is plural

E is correct.

IMO E...
D has S-V agreement error "brodcast" is plural and each preceeding "three major networks" makes it singular

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

subject verb disagreement- plural verb required

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

unnecessarily wordy

(C) superficial if the three major networks all

all is at wrong place

(D) superficial whenever each of the three major networks

again subject verb disagreement

(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each

correct option

This one require plural subject since broadcast is verb for plural. Thus only choices B,C,E are possible.

(B) superficial, as can sometimes occur if all of the three major networks- too wordy
(C) superficial if the three major networks all-"if" here is wrong
(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each-correct since Plural sub each+ plural verb

The OA is E

Although it claims to delve into political issues, televisio [#permalink] New post 10 Jun 2013, 14:40
hi,

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

this sentence is wrong and the reason given is 'if rule violated'.

can someone explain the IF rule...
is it because of the presence of CAN(television CAN)?
but I have seen an example in idiom list:-
inflation CAN hurt profits IF costs increase.

pls explain..

I can understand why A,C and D are wrong but I cant understand why B is wrong. I chose B. I thought E is idiomatically wrong. Can someone explain what is wrong with B?

Hi all,

Is it correct when we say:

-Each of X... WAS
-The three apples each WERE


Is this the rule we should apply?

Thx for your answers!
