certainly, precision to measure sounds very very awkward.
This question does not test any concept of idiom, but B is the right answer.

Understood my mistake although I marked Option E....was stuck between two options B and E....Skill and Precision together are plural so Options A,C and D eliminated. Correct idiomatic usage is skill and precision in doing something and not skill and precision to do something
