B. ACE are out as there can be only one relation between nations (between nations means relation between 2 nations). D has verb problem. "Illustrate" in singular.

C.

A and E :"nations" and "illustrates" do not agree.
D: Dr. Sayre’s lecture recounted ...and illustrate, "recounted" and "illustrate" are not in parallelism.
B. awkward.

this is ambiguous for me but has to choose one so chose B.
imo, "that" should refers to Dr. Sayre’s lecture, which is singular. so its "that illustrates".

Def. B...its relation which is singular and the word "And" in D is not right

OA is B .

Although I didnt create this post, was looking for an explanation to the OA. Understand that relation should be singular, and hence B is the best fit

Clear Subject Verb Disagreement here.

recounted episodes in XXX { Prepositional Phrase } that illustrate..

episodes - > plural
hence, verb illustrate shud be fine.. cannot be singular illustrates...

Can you please tell me the source.?

regards,
Neo

"Dr. Sayre’s lecture" is the subject and hence "Illustrates" is the appropriate singular form. relation between is incorrect and most apt in choice B.
