    Hello, San Chin! The answer of your problem is as follows:

    "rising to the challenge" means that "to accepting a challenge with proved ability to deal with an unexpected situation, problem, etc." (在有能力應付未預知的處境和難題之下,奮起接受著挑戰)

    According to the "rise" entry of the《Oxford Advanced Learner's English-Chinese Dictionary》 (牛津高楷英漢雙解辭典), "rise to the occasion, challenge, task, etc." means "prove oneself able to deal with an unexpected situation, problem, etc. 有隨機應變、克服困難、完成任務等的能力".

    In addition, according to it, "rise to the challenge" means "to accept a challenge (接受挑戰) (Usually in reference to success with the challenge. (通常涉及那挑戰的成功者))

    For the above information, the meaning of "rise to the challenge" can be combined as "to accept a challenge with proved ability to deal with an unexpected situation, problem, etc." (在有能力應付未預知的處境和難題之下,奮起接受挑戰), and "rising to the challenge" is present participle.

    'rise' can mean get up to meet someone important to you.

    A challenge is a task that is important or has great meaning.

    'rising to the challenge' (迎接挑戰) means "preparing the best to do the important task."
