Hi Riya,

“A gorgeous beach and a waterfall” is a compound noun and required a plural verb. Options A, C and D are eliminated because of the singular form “there is a beach and a waterfall”

Option E uses the ing modifier. “Providing fresh water for many of the people” modifies the entire preceding clause and hence the whole sentence becomes illogical. It is the waterfall that provides water and not the beach and waterfall together.

B is the correct answer.

Hope this helps!
