According to the professorâ€™s philosophy, the antidote to envy is oneâ€™s own work, always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it.
(A) oneâ€™s own work, always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it
(B) always work; because you donâ€™t think about it or assess it, you just do it
(C) always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it
(D) not to think or assess, but doing oneâ€™s own work
(E) neither to think about oneâ€™s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing

"d" is the most concise one so "d" what do u say ?

this SC tests parallelism!
only A has perfect parallelism : not thinking....not assessing....simply doing....

A ,B ,C are out as the antidote to envy is not to think about one's own work
Between D and E will choose D.

Very confusing. I agree that this sentence tests ll ism. But at first I choose B. B is ll too, but "always work" and reference to "you" are a little off. After reading the posts I lean more to A.
What is AO?

Late but A.
Parallelism is tested and only A stands.

B is out --> meaning changed
C --> lacks parallelism
D --> awkward phrasing
E --> lacks parallelism

A is okay
