A by POE. A is wordy, but does not have errors.

(B) always work; because you don’t think about it or assess it, you just do it - sentences separated by semicolon should be able to stand on their own.
(C) always one’s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it - thinking, assesssing, to do not parallel
(D) not to think or assess, but doing one’s own work to think, doing not parallel
(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 parallel

Late but A. Although it's wordy, it's the correct option.

can some one explain what this sentence means??????????????????

I am having trouble understanding how this sentence is correct?

How can it be A?

D sounds grammetically most correct, althoughti might not be parallel!

Will go with A
B is awkward. Always work is not clear.
C not parallel
D changes the meaning.
E awkward.
