little VS few

Little - use it for uncountable entities like water, time, sand grains etc.
few - use it for countable entities like services, persons, rooms etc.

so we cannot have --- little water or services

we need fewer for services and little for water. We can throw out A & B and D also

There is another concept cleverly hidden in the answer choices -- Subject Verb Agreement

And VS or

"and" creates compound nouns -- plural
"or" -- verb depends on the subject near the second subject

We can eliminate C because it uses "exists" whereas we should be using "exist"

We are left with E

E is right ??

Man this is a weird one. I went with C.

No confidence in it whatsoever though :stupid

E is the next best answer IMO opinion, but I have my reservations about "little available water"

Although, E seems to be changing the meaning by using "and", this is the best answer choice.
