Relationship…remains…statistics…associate…

D.

BTW, statistics is plural here because it is used like numbers but statistics as a sicene/subject is singular.

Statistics is a subject which captures pain in the behind topics such as probability etc.

Going with D

relationship is singular so we are left with D and E
statistics is plural so we can eliminate E.

This is an easy one. "The relationship" needs "remains" for subject verb agreement. And then btw the choices D and E, "statistics" is plural and therefore requires "associate". Therefore: D.

'relationship' is singular so A,B and C are out.
'statistics' is plural so E can also me shot down.

D survives.

Hi Buddy.................there might be, but its so subtle that it can be overlooked
------------------Further, you should focus more on the explicit errorrs than the 'needle in a haystack' ones

Associate with is the correct idiom..............Lung cancer is associated with smoking, and wouldn't say, Lung cancer is associated to smoking

Hope that helps.

Statistics, economics, Physics ets are Singluar. I am actually confused If I choose "statistics clearly associates " or Idiomatic Associate with.

"Statistics" as a subject is singular: Statistics is my favorite subject.
"Statistics" as data is plural: Statistics show that...

Here the usage is as data, not as subject - hence it is plural.
The idiom " associate with" is correct.
Thus D is the correct answer.

Thanks you for clarifying! Statistics when refers to data collected is actually Plural. I agree D is clear winner
