E) singular form "remains" needed and "associate to" form needed to imply association between two things/theories/etc. "associate with" is used for people

Answer is E.........Statistics is singular and so we need associates and NOT associate..and ofcourse remains is singular and so is the relationship.......

Answer is D.

Firstly, subject-verb agreement "... relationship... remains... " leave us with D and E.

Secondly, statistics in this PARTICULAR case in PLURAL. Because the singular form means scientific subject (for example, mathematics). Whereas, the plural form, like this, means sources of data.

Moreover, the idiom "associated... with" is correct.

ST
