(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

I am not convinced with the answer..
whenever we use the words like each, every we use singular verb with it..
so broadcast cant be used if each is there in the sentence

Therefore we are left with B & C.
According to me the answer should be C because B is wordy.

I understand your concern regarding the Subject-Verb agreement issue. I'll try to give an example and you can apply it to the case of this question.

Each (of the students) is/are hungry => What is the subject here? Is it Each or Students?
The students (each) are/is hungry => What is subject here? Is it The Students or Each?

Think about the above examples from meaning wise and you will get the answer immediately.

Can someone explain why A is incorrect?

Isn't broadcast acting as a verb? Hence plural?

Yes, broadcast is the verb, so it's plural. But in choice (A) the subject of the verb (broadcast) is (each) and since each is singular so there is Subject-Verb agreement. This is the issue with answers (A).

Thanks! I think I got confused between the options. Each preceding makes it singular and if each follows something - then the rule is not applicable.

Thanks:)

the problem with (c) is that its meaning differs from the original meaning, while choice (e) is faithful to that original meaning.

regarding others choices
Example
each of the students - singular
the students each - plural

generic pattern:
each (of the/pronoun/any determiner) [noun] - singular
[noun] each - plural

My doubt is :
Is C grammatically right, though it changes meaning.?

I chose E as it seemed apt just like the intention of the author, that is to provide an example of a situation . .
