A by POE. A is wordy, but does not have errors.

(B) always work; because you donâ€™t think about it or assess it, you just do it - sentences separated by semicolon should be able to stand on their own.
(C) always oneâ€™s own work: not thinking about or assessing it, but simply to do it - thinking, assesssing, to do not parallel
(D) not to think or assess, but doing oneâ€™s own work to think, doing not parallel
(E) neither to think about oneâ€™s own work nor to assess it, it is always simply doing it - to think, to assess, doing not parallel

Late but A. Although it's wordy, it's the correct option.

can some one explain what this sentence means??????????????????

I am having trouble understanding how this sentence is correct?

How can it be A?

D sounds grammetically most correct, althoughti might not be parallel!

Will go with A
B is awkward. Always work is not clear.
C not parallel
D changes the meaning.
E awkward.
