A and E are wrong because there is no subject/verb agreement. D is wrong for the same reason. B lacks paralelism. Only C remains.

relation of is the correct usage

and relationship between is correct, not relation between :)

so A and C is out.

E is out becasue it omits what is the relaition with....

B uses singular illustrates for plural subject episodes.

so D is the only one standing

my answer is D

OA is B

I was able to rule out options with 'between' due to a lack of 'and'
D can also be eliminated

but I cant figure out what is 'illustrating', relation or episodes

I read the question again. I felt for the trap. illustrate is actually refering to relation not episodes. so D is not correct. B should be the right choice.
