Picking B.
Since we are talking about many nations, we need " one another" construction.

Of course it is C....

"several little known episodes" illustrate not illustrates

So omit A, B and E.....

D is awkward just by reading it.... so omit this choice too....

C is wrong
" Between " is used for two things. We use "among" for more than two things.

However, between is the word you need to express the relation of a thing to many surrounding things severally and individually; among expresses a relation to them collectively and vaguely. So, one should use between to express one-to-one relations of many things and among to express collective and undefined relations...

This is the best explanation i could find on the net....

Yup, also "lecture...illustrate" is the wrong S-V agreement in C.

Bagging (B) here

can't think anything but B , between x and y is the correct idiom, eliminates A and C ... D has Subject-verb agreement error ..and E hardly makes any sense ... So B ..
