should be D. "Problems of water and other resource management" clearly says that problems are in water and resources management.

Well explained.
I think the sentence is testing parallelism - Management of resources is the problem - the resources themselves must be represented in parallel forms.

I agree with C.

The problem in D IMO is that it talks as if Water itself HAS a problem AND there is another problem of RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (Problems OF WATER and other resource management).

The issue being highlighted in the sentence pertains to PROBLEMS IN THE MANAGEMENT of Water and other resources [besides water]
This form maintains parallelism while describing the elements whose management IS a problem.

I think it is something about idiomatic expressions.

Problems in.. is idiomatic.
Problems of.. not properly used.

although C is long, it is correct.

First of all, water is a kind of resource too, so we should say water and other resources.
Water is not a problem. Managing water is a problem
Similarly, managing resources is a problem.
The answer best is 'C' as it correctly links the two nouns water and resources under the collective term 'management' and retains the original intent of the sentence.

(E) Resource management problems, including water

I think the meaning of the sentence can be twofold: Is the problem 'water' or 'management of water', i.e., the problem can be either that of water and managing other resources or that of managing water and managing other resources.

If the meaning is the latter, then C works well; if the meaning is the former then A works well.

How do we ascertain the meaning though? Any thoughts???

What's the OA?
