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

I remember having read about the use of semi-colon only for examples. I am confused here. I will go with D as it avoids the use of "it" and makes the meaning clear.

except for option "D" rest all options have "doing it" or "do it"
is this usage right or it has to be "do so"

A – wrong usage of “but”. Also, wordy
B – becauses needs “and”, “do so” correct idiom
C – not parallel – misses thinking about “it”
D –
E – wordy, even though neither…nor are parallel

D


Source + OA?
