^ C ^

The sentence starts with "It is the relationship.." so we need to modify the relationship. Thus, we need "which".

13. It is the relationship of hemigway with his mother, Grace, which is probably the most enigmatic of all his relationships with women.

'who' is the wrong pronoun for relationship --> B and D are out
E --> went back to talking about Grace
A --> makes the same mistake by referencing to women

C is the best choice. Correct comparison.

"C".

Can anyone let me know why "E" is wrong? I voted out "E" as "of all the women in his life" modified "which" and "which" is a relationship in this case. Is my reasoning correct and can anyone confirm the same?
