My choice is C.
relation between ..... is correct. Besides, it has S-V agreement between "episodes" and " illustrate".

Any more taker? I'll reveal the OA soon.

(A) 'between' is not appropriate
(B) relation of one nation with another that illustrates
(C) same problem as A
(D) 'and illustrate ' is wrong
(E) relations of nations that illustrates

Between B and E, I'll take B. It suggests an interaction between nations that illustrates some problems with alliances/treaties. E is not so clear in highlighting the prescnece of some interaction.

B for me.

Agree with ywilfred that 'between' is wrong here.
But would go with D for the subject verb agreement.

The orginal sentence is fine. Notice the bolded S-V agreement. The Dr.s lecture is singular, so D cant be correct.

ywilfred is correct. OA is B.
But I still don't see what's wrong with C.

I guess "between" is wrongly used coz "nations" may means two or more nations. Then, C should use among.

(A) relations between nations that illustrates
(B) relation of one nation with another that illustrates
(C) relations between nations that illustrate
(D) relation of one nation with another and illustrate
(E) relations of nations that illustrates

B is correct.

This question is not testing "between" or "among" rather it is testing "one"/other/another".

Here one another is required because the relation is between one nation with more than two countries.

use one-the other for two choices
use one-another for more than two choices
