Agree @Suvechchha.

Here focus on individual skills. So THE right answer will be pompous.

Pedantic is right because, pedantic- focus on very small detailing while ornate- use of more complex phrases in style and make something highly appealing.

'Pompous' suggests self-importance. It is the style by which one can show off his importance. But the importance is not necessarily always connected with 'knowledge' or 'education skill'. Whereas 'Pedantic' suggests an excessive display of technical knowledge. So, option A is correct.
