    It is due to the context of the sentence. If one has an intense career, likely, one will spend lots of time with work or out traveling, so one will NOT have time to be with family and friends. Hence, "away from" means "not being with".

    If you choose "for", then it means "one will HAVE time to with friends and family". That contradicts with "intense career".

    by the way, you need to look at the phrase as "away from family and friends", not "spend away".

    typo!

    one will HAVE time to with ... ==> one will HAVE time to be with ...

    The truth is it doesn't matter you choose "on", "with", or "for", they will ALL contradict with "intense career",

    001 的 附加解說 是為什麼不能選 3(with) 的原因

    2(for)的意思是 你所有的工作時間是 為 親人朋友 而花的, 並不表示這些時間你是和他們在一起。 只是為了親友而工作不應該視為 “付出的代價“

    對!是語意的問題,必須選4,這題的意思--進入一個競爭激烈的職場,代價就是你要花很多時間,所以無法兼顧朋友及家人!
