I am learning this course.

The professor is saying:

While doing this, he developed the concepts of correlation and regression, and a connection to pairs of data that follow a normal distribution.

The question is, which one follow a normal distribution? Is it "a connection" or "data"?

    I recommend reading Not So Fast! (When should I accept an answer?) on ELL meta. – J.R. May 14 at 10:09

it is the one nearest to "that clause", namely, "pairs of data" follow a normal distribution.

    The explicit syntactical clue is that a connection is singular. If it had been talking about that, the sentence would have ended with follows. – Jason Bassford May 13 at 23:24
