services are countable. So A,B,D are out.

"little" explains the availability of water. So C is out. E remains.

The sentence checks usage of countable and uncountable modifiers.
Water – uncountable – requires little
Services can be counted – fewer services

(A) little water or services exist [Or implies for both – little water or little services – eliminate it]
(B) little water or services exists [Or implies for both – little water or little services – eliminate it]
(C) few services and little water exists [Verb issue – eliminate it]
(D) there is little water or services available [Or implies for both – little water or little services – eliminate it]
(E) there are few services and little available water.[Grammatically Ok – Hold it]


Answer: E
