I think it is A.
How can C be the OA? It talks about ' other resources' and the sentence does not mention anything about that.

+1 C

I think this is a 700-level question. At least, this topic appears in the advanced chapters of the MGMAT SC.

These are my reasons:
A) The structure of this sentence implies that you also can re-write it in this way: "The problems of management of water and resource..."
IMO, you cannot re-write the sentence in this way. The MGMAT SC book mentions that if you cannot re-write the sentence in that way, the sentence is wrong. It seems that "problems" goes better with "in". That's why C is better.
(B) B sounds ackward.
(C) Correct: "Problems" goes better with "in".
(D) "Other" changes the meaning.
(E) Changes in the meaning.

I think I deserve kudos 8-)

Even choice (C) has "other" that changes the meaning. any thought?
I am in mix between (C) & (D).
