C mixes two reciprocal pronouns each other and one another.

When you want to explain the relationship between two things use each other and for more than two things use one another. Here one another makes sense, therefore B is correct.

B is correct. Using 'among' is more than two things therefore D and E can be eliminated. A has awkward construction.

Between B and C, the comparison is among all of them therefore the use of 'They' is correct.

they each have a relationship of respect for all the others
they have respect for one another
each one has respect for one another
they each have a relationship of respect for each other
they and the others respect each other


For two people interaction/respect/communication 'each other' is used and for many people interaction/respect/communication 'one another' is used.

In this sentence 'among' signifies more than two people and hence 'one another' is used.

C is the right choice.

Official Explanation Magoosh:


Split #1a: as discussed in this post, this is a situation in which there is the same relationship, respect, between any possible pair of people in the group. This is a situation that calls for the structure "each other" or "one another." Choice (A) doesn't use this, and what it uses is very wordy and awkward, so it is incorrect.

Split #1b: these structures, "each other" and "one another," demand a plural subject. Choices (C) & (D) make the mistake of using a singular subject, so these are incorrect.

That leaves us with (B) & (E). In (E), there's a strange logical problem. The subject is "they and the others"---who are these others? The pronoun "they" refers to all the employees, so there is no one left to constitute "the others." Choice (E) is incorrect.

Choice (B) is the only possible answer.

((they each)) have a relationship of respect for all the others - grammatically incorrect.

they have respect for one another - seems clean and concise. Keep.

//each one// has respect for ((one another)) - each one is accompanied by the phrase "the other". Use of one another, makes the sentence wrong.

((they each)) have a relationship of respect for ((each other)) - same as C and A.

((they)) and ((the others)) respect each other - No Words . Incorrect

Thus, B is best.
