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 - services is countable noun
(B) little water or services exists - services is countable noun
(C) few services and little water exists - this could have been right, if exists was 'exist'(plural)
(D) there is little water or services available - services is countable noun
(E) there are few services and little available water

what is the OA?

I would choose E, but have a question.

the question has "services OR water", ie ....either of them

E implies "services AND water" ie, both of them should be insufficient in such areas.

Does this change the meaning of the original sentence?? None of the options with OR seem correct to me.

The flaw here is this: little water or services - little qualifies both water and services which is wrong. Services is a countable quantity and hence should be qualified by few.

Options C and E correct this .. but then option E again uses the wrong plural exists. Hence the correct answer is

I know, thats the reason i chose E. You imply that "and" is also correct.

btw, you meant E is correct, as C has the wrong singular "exists"....... right?

Friends please try to post the OA as spoiler, really, it would help as we can finish off answering a question without having to look again and again in hope of the answer.
