(E) relations of nations that illustrates
would appreciate your answers with expalnations
" 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
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.
