κράτιστον ἐπιτήδευμα: the best pursuit.

εὐπραξίαν: good conduct. The questioner of Socrates understands εὐπραξία and εὐ πράττειν in their usual sense of success and succeed, synonymous with εὐτυχία and εὐτυχεῖν (so used in 8); and naturally asks if Socrates considers this a pursuit.

τὸ ἐπιτυχεῖν: sc. τινά as subj., easily supplied from ζητοῦντα.

εὖ ποιεῖν: to do well.
