The problem here I believe is not between such as and as. The real problem here is in the usage of and positioning of each.

We can rule out B, C and D. B and C add a conditional "if" which changes the meaning. In D, whenever changes the meaning as well.

Between A and E.
In A the problem is with the verb tense. "Broadcast is plural".

Each of the networks needs "Broadcasts" and not "Broadcast". Not Each makes the group of networks SINGULAR.

What's wrong with c?
I looked up this question and found some people said c had a meaning issue.

But I can't see any meaning issues. :cry:

Is there anyone who can explain what's wrong with c in terms of meaning?

+1 for E.

C has meaning issues. C uses "if" to indicate the presence of if-then conditional. C suggests that the television can be superficial only when all the three networks broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

The original intent is to give an example of superficiality and not suggest when it can occur.

In the construction "each of the three major networks" each is the subject. Each is singular, so the verb has to be singular... but it isn't. The verb in A is "broadcast," which is plural.

In E, they move each - that one says "the three major networks each." Now, networks is the subject, and networks is plural, so the verb has to be plural... and it is!

Confusing answer. Can someone explain how the "as..." phrase after the comma is acceptable?

Also, is this an official question?

This is a GMAT PREP question

"as..." is not a phrase but a clause. Here "as" is used as a subordinating conjunction http://grammar.yourdictionary.com/parts ... tions.html and hence this construction is correct.

All said, none of the above info is required to solve the question. "Broadcast" needs a plural subject which ,b/w A & E, only E provides. Hence A is correct

First of all, C has very awkward structure. I wont say it is incorrect because i am not 100% sure but it is certainly bad, it very awkward to say "Although X, Y if Z" because it is a bad combination of "Although X,Y" & "If X then Y" structure. I cannot even think of any sentence that could sensibly follow such structure

Now towards more constructive reasoning
C uses if-then structure which means
IF the three major networks all .... THEN television can be superficial ... which shows CAUSE-EFFECT but original sentence does not convey any cause-effect relationship

I hope i have cleared your doubt

B,C,D are out easily... Between A and E,

Also plural factor of broadcast
So went for E

Ans is E and I hope there is no issue about it, because of proper S-V agreement between the plural word the three networks and broadcast.

A and D suffer from S-V mismatch.

B and C give a distorted meaning that all the three networks are jointly doing the broadcasting, which is anti – delving. E therefore is the best.

What is the difference between such as when and as when? In both cases, the purpose is to give an example. However, such as is used to exemplify nouns. while as when can be used to give examples of clauses.

Seems answer is E, but not too sure.

"Each " when used before the subject (Three major Networks) should be followed by a Singular verb (Broadcasts).
A and D are out because of use of plural verb "Broadcast"

Could not identify what is exactly wrong with B and C but
B seems Wordy.
C gives only one condition with "IF" statement whereas the original statement seems to portray one of the many conditions.

In Option E,
Subject (three major networks) + Each + Plural Verb (Broadcast) is correct.

Although it claims to delve into political issues, television can be superficial such as when each of the three major networks broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

A. superficial such as when each of the three major networks - Verb in non-underlined portion is plural but subject each in underlined portion is singular.
B. superficial, as can sometimes occur if all of the three major networks - Wordy
C. superficial if the three major networks all - IF brings sense of condition and here we are talking about an instance.
D. superficial whenever each of the three major networks - Same as A
E. superficial, as when the three major networks each - Seems correct.

OA please.... :?
