My choice is C.
relation between ..... is correct. Besides, it has S-V agreement between "episodes" and " illustrate".

(A) 'between' is not appropriate
(B) relation of one nation with another that illustrates
(C) same problem as A
(D) 'and illustrate ' is wrong
(E) relations of nations that illustrates

Between B and E, I'll take B. It suggests an interaction between nations that illustrates some problems with alliances/treaties. E is not so clear in highlighting the prescnece of some interaction.

B for me.

Agree with ywilfred that 'between' is wrong here.
But would go with D for the subject verb agreement.

The orginal sentence is fine. Notice the bolded S-V agreement. The Dr.`s lecture is singular, so D can`t be correct.

A.

ywilfred is correct. OA is B.
But I still don't see what's wrong with C.

I guess "between" is wrongly used coz "nations" may means two or more nations. Then, C should use among.

B is correct.

This question is not testing "between" or "among" rather it is testing "one"/other/another".

Here one another is required because the relation is between one nation with more than two countries.

use one-the other for two choices
use one-another for more than two choices
