According to the professor’s philosophy, the antidote to envy is one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it.
(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it
(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing

"d" is the most concise one so "d" what do u say ?

A ,B ,C are out as the antidote to envy is not to think about one's own work
Between D and E will choose D.

Very confusing. I agree that this sentence tests ll ism. But at first I choose B. B is ll too, but "always work" and reference to "you" are a little off. After reading the posts I lean more to A.
What is AO?

Parallelism is tested and only A stands.

B is out --> meaning changed
C --> lacks parallelism
D --> awkward phrasing
E --> lacks parallelism

A is okay
