A

very tough

I narrowed it down to A & B, but B starts off with because; there is no need for a semicolon, plus it changes the meaning a bit-- it's not work per say, but rather one's own work.

"almost wrong" is not always wrong, depending on the situation.

I saw some convincing reasoning posted by some others. If you still not get the point, ask again.!
