Dr Sayre's lecture recounted several little-known episodes in the relations between nations that illustrates what is wrong with alliances and treaties that do not have popular support.

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

I will go with b.

C is not correct because between is not proper here.
D and makes the sentence wrong.
E I believe that the subject do not agree with the verb: several little-known episodes .... illustartes.

That is my attempt

my guess is that

C should have been, relations among nations.

looks like an idiom related with "relation". does anyone know idioms wrt "relation"

- ash

C was my first pick
if not C, I'll go with B by POE

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

d is wrong b/c 'and' is superflous here, and 'illustrate' is a wrong tense verb to be used with relation
e. relations 'illustrate', not 'illustrate'

OA is B.

In C "relations between nations" seems to be the flaw.

how does one decide between C and E? Alliance and treaties could be between 2 or amongst more than two nations? Based on that I would have picked E? SC gurus help!! with explaination

To Ashkg and other folks

Are you implying that "relations between nations" is wrong even if the 2 nations were strictly referenced?
In otherwords, do these 2 statements have the same meaning or they are different?

1. The relations between Africa and Europe can be described as cordial.

2. The relations between the nations can be discribed as cordial.

Thanks

I suppose there can be only one relation between two nations. So you can't say relations bt nations. Just my guess.

Btw what does POE mean? Sorry for the ignorance. I'm rather new here.
