subject here is relation not episods nor relations. so only B makes sense because and in D is not necessary because that changes the meaning as well.

(A),(C) relations between nations --> not idiomatic
(E)relatiosn of natiosn --> not idiomatic

(B) - is the best choice. illuatrates is required as it's the relation that illustrates the point, not the epidsodes or the lecture.

(D) is out as it uses 'and' as a joiner which is inappoprite.

B for me.

vithal, IMO, in C relations between nations (how many nations? not clear. it could be 2 or 3 or so on) is not correct expression. if the relations among 10 nations, then?

I agree - I was thinking that illustrate should refer to episodes - but thinking back, I guess it is ok to "make it refer" to the lecture.

Would choose C...
A, D and E have incorrect use of singulars/plurals in the word illustrate(s)
And in B i think it is redundant to say relation between one nation to another...also 'relations' correspons to 'episodes'
that's my logic anyway
what is the OA?

OK, can somebody point out why the subject is relation and not episodes. I think relation is the object of preoposition.~So what is illustrating- i guess it is the examples/episodes not the relation per se. However, between is indeed doubtful in C.

"relation" and "between" is redundant. so A) and C) are out. D) and E) are out because of wrong verb-subject-agreement. its B).
