I strongly feel that "problems in" should be followed by a verb which is not so in choice C..Again "problems of " should not be followed by a verb as used incorectly in B....My choice is D.............

D. "water" is also resource. So, "water and other resource" is better.

I agree with C

C provides clarity though this option is wordy

D has an ambiguous meaning, problems of water and other resource management could be separated to mean water problems, and other resource management problems. It is unclear that they both are together. the problems are with the management, not the water and other resources. C is best.

would you say there are problems in the management of the company i work for, or problems in managing the company I work for? would make more sense with the noun than the verb. problems of is incorrect usage as well Im pretty sure

OA = C
