Hello again there,
Sorry for the several questions, but can you please help me understand the following question?

OG SC # 107
Downzoning, zoning that typically results in the reduction of housing density, allows for more open space in areas where little water or services exist.

A: little water or services exist
B: little water or services exists
C: few services and little water exists
D: there is little water or services available
E: there are few services and little available water

My question)
In regards to E, correct choice, I think the correct should be “there are few services and little water availableâ€

E has to be chosen because the rest are grammatically wrong.

A - cannot say little services
B - 'exists' is wrong. It should be 'exist'. Also, the violation in A applies here.
C - wrong. It jas to be 'exist' because A and B refer to things.
D - The violation in A applies here.

So, it has to be E.

water is uncountable and service is countable. u use 'little' with uncountable words whereas 'few' with countable words. so A,B and D are eliminated. C changes the meaning of the sentence by placing 'and' instead of 'or'. so, this leaves E as the best choice. i hope its good enuff expl for u.

Moreover, in C the verb exists, which is singular, doesnot agree with the plural subjects.

The question here is, what is the difference between
(i) little available water
(ii) little water available

IMO, the first suggests that there is less amount of useful water(water that can be used), whereas the second suggests that there is little water.

Downzoning is basically reducing the density of housing - this will imply that with more houses/property, the quality of water could get worse and hence I think (i) fits the sentence better than (ii). However, as others have reasoned, (E) is the best of the available options (or options available? :-) )
