I go for (C).

"relation between X and Y" looks better than "relation of X with Y".

"relations" is plural, so it has to be "illustrate", not "illustrates".

"relations between nations", "Relations of nation", doesn't sound good (idiomatic).

I go for B.

" between" is used when we talk about two objects ----->for "between ( two, as we latently understand here) nations" , " relation" must be "relation" coz there's certainly only one relation between two objects :!: We can't say relations between you and I. Thus, A and C are out!
" relations of nations" in E seems ok but it , indeed, doesn't succeed at expressing the interaction. One may ask " relations of nations" with what?? . Eliminate E.
D is out because "relation" is singular and the clause need a singular verb; "illustrate" is wrong.
We're left with B.

I really do not like any of the answer choices.

In B, illustrates should be illustrate as it refers to episodes.
