Explanation

The snow provides the fresh water so if there isn’t much snowfall, the cities will be lacking water. Choices (A), (D), and (F) all have the opposite meaning and proliferation and burgeoning are not really words that could be used to describe run-off either. Paucity and dearth both indicate that something is lacking and are the correct choices.

Hence options C and E is correct!
