interesting...

(A) little cannot be used to quantify services.
(B) same as above and Verb "exists" problem.
(C) verb (exists) is incorrect.
(D) another verb (is) problem.
(E) left with it. however "there are/is" is not a preferred one in gmat, but no choice.

E.

E is correct.
'few services ' and ' little water ' is the correct usage.
