I will go with B.

relation among nations --> correct (comparing more than two objects)
relation between nations --hmmm I am not comfortable with that
relation betwen one and another -->
relation between X and Y ( comparing two objects)

B) relation of one nation with another that illustrates --> relation.. that illustrates.. -> perfect.

Method 1:

Dr Sayre's lecture recounted several little-known episodes in [the relations …] and [treaties …]
A, C – illogically compares nations and treaties – eliminate it
D is wrong as it compares episodes and illustrate what is wrong in alliances
E – Agreement issue

Method: 2 (Agreement)

A, D and E – Agreement issue
Between B and C –
C – Between tries to compare nations and treaties – eliminate it
