I can't see how we can use as here.

Can be superficial is a situation/condition arising when X happens.

Comes down to C & D for me.

Between C & D, I am choosing C as it does not have S-V disagreement.

In D each makes the singular subject disagree with plural verb broadcast

apparently E is correct here because "each" is used correctly

IMO A.

(A) superficial such as when each of the three major networks - correctly stresses that all three networks broadcast the same statement.
(B) superficial, as can sometimes occur if all of the three major networks - awkward and redundunt
(C) superficial if the three major networks all - if is not correctly used here
(D) superficial whenever each of the three major networks - changes the meaning
(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each - its not a comparison, as cannot be used here.

Thanks.

Classic question on use of "each"

Note that when we say "each of 3 networks", we are talking about 'one individual network' => A is wrong because of subject-verb agreement error. (each of 3 networks broadcast)

Though this SVA error is corrected in B, B is wrong because it says
that "all" networks implying 3 networks 'together' broadcast .

C is wrong for using IF.

D repeats the same SVA error in A.

E is correct. It says "3 networks each" => 3 networks and corrects SVA error in A.
"as" means "for instance" and is correct.

Going with E here is why:

the original sentence intends to give an example when TV can be superficial, so "if" structure is not needed here. On the GMAT "if" structure is used to indicate conditions "if x, then y". Please correct me if I am wrong : )

if is not correct. redundant use of "can" twice: tv can be, as can
(C) superficial if the three major networks all
if is not correct
(D) superficial whenever each of the three major networks
(E) superficial, as when the three major networks each

Hey alpha,

"Though this SVA error is corrected in B, B is wrong because it says
that "all" networks implying 3 networks 'together' broadcast ."

what is wrong with this idea of "all together broadcast"? isn't it the same in meaning as "each of the three broadcasts"?

Okie when you dont see "Each" in the start, just rem one rule

If Each follows a plural subject, verb and subsequent pronouns must be plural

A and D clear violate the rule

(You can also eliminate A and D By Subj verb agreement)

How?
Broadcast is plural and not underlined and hence Each must follow the plural subject

E meets it but we have not analyzed the options

All-gives the sense of parallel broadcast..As can sometimes occur is awkward

hence B and C out

E
