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 it

This one is tough...
I would finally go for B

(A) oneâ€™s own work, always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about it, not assessing it, but simply doing it -> seems too wordy, and the repetition doesn't seem so good too
(B) always work; because you donâ€™t think about it or assess it, you just do it -> I think it is a shorter way to say the same idea. ok.
(C) always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it -> not parallel and I also don't like the use of one's own work, I found it weird.
(D) not to think or assess, but doing oneâ€™s own work -> out of scope
(E) neither to think about oneâ€™s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it -> complex and wordy

One more vote for B coz it is concise and grammatically correct
All other options are too wordy or meaningless
