The "skill in measuring" makes more sense than the "skill to measure".

You would never say that someone demonstrates her skill to measure, you would say that someone demonstrates her skill in measuring.

needs "are" for reference agreement.

So B or E. The skill can be used with both to and "ing" form. But precision cant be used with "to" form. It can only be used with an "ing" form.

"In measuring" is better than "to measure". It just sounds right to me. So D and E are eliminated.

Recall the rule "A and B are", not "A and B is", here we have "the skill and the precision", so ARE is needed. A and C are eliminated.

B is my choice.
