I'll go with B.

What is illustrating. It seems like the "lecture" is doing the "illustrating", so A, B or E.

B it should be.
For more than two nations ,we require one another. A and C are out.
In D, instead of ' and ' , ' that ' is required.
In E, ' relations ' is wrong. Should be ' relation '.

Nope, this is wrong. It is the relation that illustrates. Because lecture recounted , the second verb should be in the past as well.

However, B is the correct choice

Impossible. Let's simplify the sentence. The lecture recounted episodes that illustrate what is wrong with alliances.
'That' refers to 'episodes', therefore C must be correct.

C cannot be right.. because between cannot have more than 2... So it has to be relation among nations.. then C would have been ok..

I am not sure why is E wrong?

I agree that between is used when talking about two things. Can you have a relation among many nations. No. Relations are always one to one i.e between two things. So I believe, between is correct here.

I still believe that this should be C. Its the episodes that are illustrating.

I agree with PS, relations are between 2 nations.
Example : three nations A B C:

relation AB, BC, AC : There are 3 relations between A and B, B and C, C and A. Thus C.

I've never seen the idiom "relation of a with b" but "relation between a and B".

I think the problem lies with the quality of this SC.

"illustrate" should logically be the verb of "episodes", then you can't use its singular form. obviously B is incorrect.
