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

Can somebody give a detailed explanation of the right answer? Thanks.

Agree that it's A for the correct parallelism.
B is also wrong as it uses semicolon to seperate two dependent clauses.

Thanks guys, I just got confused with the construct and the wordiness. Your explanation makes sense.
