I think, that it must be "episodes ... that ilustrate", therefore A, B and E are ruled out.

D is out cause change the meaning and is not parallell "recounted ... and ilustrate".

Although, "Relations between nations" may sound a little awkaward to me, IMO C.

Not sure.

C as well.

Find the correct subject. Dr S's lecture is not the one that illustrates, it's the episodes that illustrate.

OK looks like OA is B.

But I thought 'between' could be used for more than 2 objects, if it describes the relation between (?) each other.

Hi guys,

IMO: B

(A) relations between nations that illustrates subjet (relations) - verb (illustrates) agreement

(B) relation of one nation with another that illustrates Hold

(C) relations between nations that illustrate there is no reason to assume that there are just two nations... therefore, among should be used

(D) relation of one nation with another and illustrate a verb for relation is missing and illustrate should be in past simple

(E) relations of nations that illustrates subjet (relations) - verb (illustrates) agreement

OA? Cheers

Earlier I was also for C but since thats not the OA, B seems to be the next choice.

JohnLewis1980 , Good analysis. Between is used between two choices only and among should have been used for multiple choices. I still am not sure if i would have chosen B but now it seems right after knowing the OA.
