This one has already been discussed here: sc-although-it-claims-to-delve-into-political-issues-telev-54402.html
But the OA has not been provided yet.

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
(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

My take:
As per my understanding, each is singular and broadcast is plural, so A, D and E out.
Between B and C, C is less wordy so C.

Surprisingly, according to my source, OA is E.
Could anybody clarify?
Thanks,
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

Yup, for me it's E. The "each" in E isn't a noun so "broadcast" is correct. A and D uses 'each' as nouns so they're out.

B is wordy so it's out. C is grammatically correct - so it's an option however C implies that the contention is conditional and that is not the original thought of the sentence.

This is just my take. :)

Thanks, that helped.
And what about the usage of all?
all of the [plural noun] + plural? And what about [noun] all?
Thanks,

If the Subject is before Each then match the Verb according to the Subject, In other cases each is singular.
