This question is exactly same as that of the Official Question # 82 in OG Verbal 2nd Edition.

Even the option is also same.

(A) little water or nutrients exist
(B) little water or (little)nutrients exists
(C) few nutrients and little water exists
(D) there is little available water or nutrients available
(E) there are few nutrients and little available water Yes

Please post answers along with explainations!!!!


So the verb "remain" in the original gives a clue that the verb "exist" should be plura; however, the issue with the original sentence is that it implies little nutrients or little water exist. Nutrients are something countable so the correct term is "few nutrients," or "fewer nutrients."

E
