As soon as we see between we have to find the parallel marker AND .
Hence B is the only option which states and continuing

The question tests correct usage of idioms...

Correct idiomatic usage of between is , betweex X and Y hence options (A), (C) & (D) rejected left with (A) and (E).

(E) can be rejected as "whether to continue" doesn't maintain the parallel structure as (B)...

According to some entrepreneurs, the most difficult choice one has to make while starting a business is between quitting one’s day job and concentrating full time on the business, thereby risking one’s future, and continuing with one’s day job and working part time at the business until it finds its feet.

Hence , correct Answer must be (B)
