It will not disappear from your Works in Progress but you will not be able to reclaim it at a later date and have it count towards your Author Challenges total.
The quiz stays in your list and can be accessed as normal-- it just can't be a challenge quiz.
In this case I usually recommend retitling since someone else will be able to claim the title you gave up.
