This sentence is lecturing us on how to keep what we've earned, so we're looking for
a word that describes a positive way of working.
(A), (C) and (E) are all easy to eliminate.
"Absurd" means ridiculous, "asinine" means stupid, and "impetuous" means thoughtless.
If anybody used those words to describe us, we wouldn't be expecting an employee of
the month award.
"Sensible" isn't a totally asinine choice.
Most people would agree that working hard is a pretty sensible thing to do.
However, "persistent" seems to work a little better in this sentence.
We're looking for something that describes continued work, and "persistent" means
to... keep on keeping on. So (D) is the best answer.
D for our work here is "Done."
