The source of this topic is an RC question, which you can find below.

One of the greatest challenges facing medical students today, apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, is that of remaining empathetic to the needs of patients in the face of all this rigorous training

http://www.beatthegmat.com/rc-the-great ... 32721.html

You will see that the correct choicein the topic is the same as you find in the RC passage, except for the change of Medical students to Engineering practitioners. Is this passage bonafide or not? If one can accept the RC passage as good enough, then there will be no confusion about accepting A as the correct choice, since the original is using the phrase ‘is remaining’ rather than ‘ to remain”. Absorbing and learning along with ‘is remaining’ is more parallel than absorbing and learning along with ‘to learn’, IMO. All the other choices have other errors. So A.

I agree with many posters that there is confusion about why A is a better answer than B. Is it imperative that "is remaining" be parallel to "absorbing" and "learning"?
