It seems to me that "can be" , "sometimes are" have the same meaning. Why are they repeated?

In Choice B "noting" is placed after the common noun gynaecologist. Does that not mean that gynaecologist is noting as actually the author is noting.

It's B also to me.

We should also mention our "2nd best" answer choice. With most middle-difficulty-to-harder questions, it's usually 2 answer choices that we end up with. Mentioning our 2 best choices would open up more topics to discuss about, helping us be more aware of the state of our knowledge, patterns of reasoning, etc.
