Clue is other resources as water is also a resource. Correct sentence should use other.
Eliminate A, B and E on this basis.
Between C and D. In D, Problems of water do not make any sense.
Hence C.

C is the best

I came across this tip that may apply to this question. Can someone please validate?

Two nouns together is generally a danger. For example,
Water management - Rather use Management of Water.
Sales increment - Increase in sales
Profit elevation - Elevation in profit etc.

What exactly is wrong with option b ?
Still don’t get it. Why exactly is the word “other” required?

Option B separates water and resources into two distinct categories. However, they are not two separate categories; rather, water is part of the overall category of resources. Only option C correctly shows that water is one of resources that need to be managed.

Compare two sentences:

Option B paraphrased: "I need to buy some whisky and some alcohol for the party."
Option C paraphrased: "I need to buy some whisky and some other alcohol for the party."

Option C is clearly the correct one, because it shows that thing A (water, whisky) is a part of a broader category B (resources, alcohol).

Can you please have a look at my explanation? If it doesn't make sense, I can make a more detailed explanation.

Hey, Morning, I mean I could not figure out water and resources be the same category.... If give me more premise, I may understand, But based on this question,I myself may not think because of B separate the water and resource... I thought resource refer something else... That is my understanding issue. Your explanation is
perfect.. :)

(E) Resource management problems, including water.


A suggests that "water and resource management" are problems. The intended meaning is that the "problem in managing these resources" will be at the head of concerns.
B also conveys the incorrect meaning in A.
C conveys the intended meaning.
D is similar to B.
E is the worst of the 5, repeating the mistake in A and B, rather awkwardly.

C it is.
