I was doing an exercise and I had to find the infinitive and also its type.

And fools who came to scoff remained to pray.

I think here there are 2 infinitives to scoff and to pray. But the answer is only to scoff.

Heres a Reference to infinitives: https://literarydevices.net/infinitive/

As stated, its a pure Verb in its natural form that is always placed before the root verb "to". It can also be used as an Adjective, Adverb or Noun. You said the answer is only to scoff. If that is the case, and your "question" is multiple choice, like a test, then that is the answer, and they simply haven't included it, if its not, then that is a mistake on the person who made the question.
