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"?

GMATNinja,

I chose B for this answer. I agree with many B is more clear with the intended meaning. Why does "remaining" have to be parallel? Can you take a look and share with us your thoughts on this question?

One of the greatest problems facing Engineering practitioners today, apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, is remaining empathetic to the needs of patients in the face of all the rigorous training

A. facing Engineering practitioners today, apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, is remaining

B. facing Engineering practitioners today, apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, is to remain

C. faced by engineering practitioners today apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, which remain

D. faced by Engineering practitioners today, apart from absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, and they remain

E. facing Engineering practitioners today, is absorbing volumes of technical information and learning habits of scientific thought, and besides remaining

Both C and D are inappropriate because "is" should be coming after "One of the greatest problems facing engineering practitioners today.... is _______ "

If you plug in C and D, sentence will be

C - "One of the greatest problems faced by today... which"

D - "One of the greatest problems faced by today...and besides remaining"
