Does some one has a better explanation? I am not aware of the idiom "problems in"

Isn't water problem different from problems in management of water.

The original sentence does not tell us any thing about water management problems.

problems of water sounds awkward too as if water has problems

I will go with E.....if we take literal meaning then water management is kind of resource management....therefore resource management should include water, other options look bit ackward....can somebody explain what is OA and OE of this?

It is between A and C. Other choices look bad.
What I got to like about C (after choosing A first time around) is that the phrase is constructed as two mutually exclusive events - "water and other issues", not "water and resource management issues" as in A.

(A) Water and resource management problems
(B) Problems of managing water and resources "problems of managing"? awkward
(C) Problems in the management of water and other resources
(D) Problems of water and other resource management same as B
(E) Resource management problems, including water it would make sense if we had "including those related to water"

(A) Water and resource management problems
Here, 'and' is used as a separator (or a parallel marker). So, water should be parallel with resource management problems. Such a scenario is wrong. How can 'water' be at the head of list of concerns?

(B) Problems of managing water and resources
Similar issue as in A. Entities to the right and left of 'and' are not parallel. How can 'resources' be at the head of list of concerns?

(C) Problems in the management of water and other resources
Parallel marker 'and' clearly separates two parallel entities - 'water' and 'other resources'. The subject - 'problems' be at the head of list of concerns.

(D) Problems of water and other resource management
'Problems of water' implies, water has problems. That is illogical. Same with parallel entity - 'other resource management'. How can 'other resource management' have problems?

(E) Resource management problems, including water
Same issue in D.

(A) Water and resource management problems...appears as if water will be at the the head of the legislature’s list of concerns and resource management problems will be at the head of the legislature’s list of concerns
(B) Problems of managing water and resources...managing is not the issue...
(C) Problems in the management of water and other resources.....correct... water is a resource... hence water and other resources correct
(D) Problems of water and other resource management....incorrect.... management of water is also i concern...
(E) Resource management problems, including water....water is not parallel to problems...

between b and c , B wrong because of "other"
we need "other" in c to be logic.

focus on meaning and we will see the meaning error. of course, structural error will appear automatically

Problems in this context is Problems (faced). Only C makes sense.
