It is definitely E.

superficial, as when the three major networks each this makes the subject plural hence "broadcast" is correct. Just read about this on Spideys notes yesterday. B and C seem to change the meaning.

A and D can be eliminated because the subject is singular[/b]

I found the correct answer as option E by process of elimination.I have doubt regarding the placement of the word 'each ' in correct answer. choice E is the only option in which word ' each ' is placed at the end

Yes, the placement is correct and the placement has a decisive impact on the verb (whether it would be singular or plural).

"Each of" placed before the subject takes a singular verb -

Correct. Each of the three major networks broadcasts. (singular verb)

"Each" placed after the subject does not have any bearing on the verb form -

Correct. The three major networks each broadcast. (plural verb)

solved it in 65 seconds...not bad!!! :)

first error that screams for attention: verb broadcast...we must have a plural noun.
each of the three major networks - each makes the noun singular, and thus, doesn't get along well with the plural form of the verb broadcast.
A and D make the same mistake.
B and C introduce a not needed if/then condition.
E is the only one that stands!
