Thanks MA for posting such an awesome question ... to tell you I got tricked by it but then realized what I was doing wrong. This is what happens when you give such a long break to ur GMAT Prep and start.

The concept here that is tested is the subject EACH:

now the VERB here is BROADCAST, which is singular

so now here in the Original sentence we have EACH OF THE THEREE MAJOR...........BROADCAST

now EACH here is should have PLURAL VERB.

Consider these two e.g:

Each of these shirts IS pretty----------------SUBJECT is EACH
They each ARE great cricket players.-------SUBJECT is THEY

Do you spot the difference. The difference here is in the SUBJECT

SO in our sentence EACH is the subject ...and verb is BROADCAST and that is wrong.

So now we have eliminated A and D.

now toss is between B/C/E.

B is wrong because" as can sometimes occur"--wrong
C is wrong because "Networks all Broadcast"----Absurd Statement
E is CORRECT because " netwroks Each Broadcast"
Go with E..

sourabhmalpani

what did you find wrong in "as can sometimes happen"

i opted E. just because i didnt like the use of "if" in B.

Saurabh I think "broadcast" is plural and "broadcasts" is singular. Any questions on that.

So only B says "all the" so I go with B.
