Hello

I agree that E suits the most but one thing - by replacing "or" structure of the sentence by "and" aren't we compromising on the meaning of the sentence?

Guys, can we sort out the below question?
I have no clue at this stage; would appreciate explanations.

251. 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

well, few refers to countable things such as cars. 1 car, 2 cars, 3 cars

few services. 1 service, 2 services, 3....
that leaves C and E.

little refers to size. water cannot be big or little.

Therefore E.

exists is wrong. It should have been exist. Hence, E.

This question is an excellent candidate to illustrate the benefits of vertical splits, considering the correct choice may be regarded as wordy.

Split 1 : S-V agreement : B & C out.
Split 2 : Countable vs uncountable : cannot use little with services. A & D out.

Left with E, though wordy, is correct.

(A) little water or services exist
Little (water or services) - it means little water or little services. We cannot use little for services because services are countable. If you do not get this in a go then scanning or POE of choices would make you think about “few” Vs “little”.

(B) little water or services exists
Same as A.

(C) few services and little water exists
This corrects the problem in A and B but introduces S-V error. A AND B existS.

(D) there is little water or services available
same as A. little is used for services.

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