The use of participles

In Luke 10:25 a question is asked by the lawyer in aorist participle when
asking what to do. Jesus then responds with present participle. Being
aware that an aorist participle may or may not mean one event, is it
possible that the lawyer is asking what "one" event can get one eternal
life, with Jesus responding that it is not "one" act but a "life style"?
Does Luke contrasts these two participles in this passage to stress
continual action against one, or is it just a style for Luke?
