Seems like an error in this sentence somewhere. Anyhow, I`ll take A because it is the most parallel.

How do you guys get the right answer.
OA is A.

But I thought A is wordy, and D is precise.

Can you please explain what is wrong with D.

thank you.

The meaning of D is not the same as in the original sentence.

The sentence reads the antidote to envy is "X", always "X", not thinking about X, not assessing X but by simply doing X.

In D, the sentence now reads, the antidote to envy is not to think or assess, but doing X

C is closest to keeping the original meaning, but "simply to do" is not idiomatic.

A because of the parallel construction of the last part of the sentence.
