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 it.

Can you please explain the answer ?

(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it --- thinking , assessing but simply doing -// and correct

(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it --- a subordinate clause after semi - colon is ungrammatical

(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it -----thinking, or assessing but simply do it -- not//

(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work –--to think to assess but doing --- not//

(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it. –-----To think, to assess, doing -- not//

Parallelism.

In E, "it" doesn't have antecedent.

(A) one’s own work, always one’s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it. TOO WORDY, REDUNDANT AND ANNOYING BUT SEEMS CORRECT.
(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it. "YOU" SOUNDS UGLY, MAINLY WHEN IT COMES FROM A PHILOSOPHER. + BECAUSE CAN'T STAND FOR ITS OWN.
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it NT PRALLEL-THINK -DOING
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work NOT PARALLEL-THINK-DOING
(E) neither to think about one’s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it. NOT PARALLEL -THINK-DOING

doesn't 'it' refer to 'work' in E?
