Correct option is B)
When a plural noun is a proper name for a singular object or collective unit, a singular verb is used and vice versa. In the given sentence, 'are a connection' is incorrect as 'billiards' is the singular noun thus, the singular verb should be used.
It should be replaced with 'is a connection'. 'Popularly played' is the correct tense used.
