I go with D only because of the fact that use of "available" seems correct

little water or few services exist would be the right phrase.
Hence C.

^ C ^

A, B and D are out easily.

E is wordy and confusing.

torn between a and c.

c seems to change the meaning with the substitution of 'and' for 'or'

i am concerned about modifying services with 'little'

i'll go with a so it is more concise.

The compound subject 'few services and little water' requires a plural verb (since they are joined by and). But 'exists' is a singular verb. Thats why I didnt pick C.

Can exist go along with service.

I will pick 'D'. Services available makes more sense to me than Services exists.

'C' - changes the original meaning by replacing 'or' with 'and'

Whats wrong with A? D also seems right, but I thought D was more wordy than A.

I am not for 'A' because of the following 2 reasons

1) Not sure if 'exist' can qualify service

2) If it can qualify, then I will go for 'B' as services should be followed by exists (plural form)

E for me too!

(A) little water or services exist - How can service exists?
(B) little water or services exists - ditto
(C) few services and little water exists - ditto
(D) there is little water or services available
(E) there are few services and little available water - lengthy but the only one that makes full sense.

Can anyone justify 'E'

is it because few services.

I am not sure how 'E' is better than 'D'. Moreover 'E' changes the meaning by replacing or with and

I think its E because ' services ' are countable while ' water' ' is not.

We generally use few for countable and little for uncountable.
Only E stands right in this regard.

In my earlier post I told that it was between C and E.

I thought E was wordy but C has a sbj-verb agreement problem. So it should be better E.

(A) little water or services exist ---> "little water or little services" is wrong we cannot use little with services. it is a plural and countable noun

(B) little water or services exists ---> same as A

(C) few services and little water exists --->we need a plural verb form

(D) there is little water or services available ---> same as A and B

(E) there are few services and little available water ---> correct
