Going with D

relationship is singular so we are left with D and E
statistics is plural so we can eliminate E.

This is an easy one. "The relationship" needs "remains" for subject verb agreement. And then btw the choices D and E, "statistics" is plural and therefore requires "associate". Therefore: D.

'relationship' is singular so A,B and C are out.
'statistics' is plural so E can also me shot down.

D survives. :)

Relationship…remains…statistics…associate…

D.

BTW, statistics is plural here because it is used like numbers but statistics as a sicene/subject is singular.

Statistics is a subject which captures pain in the behind topics such as probability etc.

is there any difference between "with" and "to " at the end of each sentence?

It can be solved in 30 second, the relationship between is singular so remains a,b,c out
And between d and e , idiom associated with so D :-)

Hi Buddy.................there might be, but its so subtle that it can be overlooked
------------------Further, you should focus more on the explicit errorrs than the 'needle in a haystack' ones

Associate with is the correct idiom..............Lung cancer is associated with smoking, and wouldn't say, Lung cancer is associated to smoking


Hope that helps.
