I will go with E

In A and D each of the three major networks require singular broadcast so eliminate them

In B - I prefer such as to as can in this case, since its using it as an example

C- three major networks all- awkard

I really think it's C. This sentence seems to be conditional. If you restructure option C, it is basically saying:

If the three major networks all broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate, then television can be superficial.

this sounds perfectly correct to me. also, the verb "broadcast" is plural, therefore, you have to go for an answer choice that has a plural subject. option A, D, and E use the word "each", therfore, they should be eliminated. In option B, "as can sometimes occur"? doesn't the word "can", by itself, say the same exact meaning? that's why i choose C.

ok, i looked it up on the net. so whenever words such as "every" or "each" come right after the subject, those words have no bearing on the verb form...hmm...i never knew that! cool, so E it is

the three major networks each broadcast :- plural verb
each of three major networks broadcasts :- singular verb

I know the OA is E, but I chose C while practicing and am not totally convinced that it's wrong. It can be superficial if the networks all broadcast the same message. What's wrong with this statement? In fact, I think E is wordy.

Thanks. Now, I agree it will be E. This goes straight into my notebook and error log.
