A vs B, i will go with A.
B tries to distort the meaning. 'ones own work', not just 'work'
But, fingers crossed, OA?

Will go with A.

B - not parallel
C - simply to do it........ not parallel
D - awkward. "always not to think ....." very awkward.
E - "it is always doing it" .......too many "it". Refers to too may things..

Picking A.
Does indeed looks like a typo.
A's construction is more || than B and also Bmisses the original meaning "one's own work".

A. ones own work, always ones own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it : CORRECT: ||ism and proper meaning.

B. always work; because you dont think about it or assess it, you just do it: Changinging the meaning.

C. always ones own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it

D. not to think or assess, but doing ones own work

E. neither to think about ones own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it

I agree one's one work should be a typo and A seems to be the best parallel structure present here
