It's B. 'relation of one nation with another' is correct.
Is 'that' modifying 'Dr. Sayreâ€™s lecture' or modifying 'relation of one nation with another'?
Little confused

I'll go with B. 'between' is used to establish a relationship when there are two entities. If there are more than two entities in the relationship, 'among' should be used.

Although the thumb rule would indicate that 'between' is used for relations involving two entities, and 'among' is used for multiple entities, option 'B' does seem a little too wordy for my liking.

My vote goes to 'C'. It is short, precise and sounds better, methinks.

The point to keep in mind is that the 'rule' being cited to support 'B' is a thumb rule - not an established syntactical regulation.

I'll go with C because it is concise and in my understanding 'episodes' needs a plural verb.

Prof, it is the episodes that illustrate what is wrong isnt it. Then how can it be B?
In B it is episodes .... illustates.. (subject verb). Only C sorts it.
