The semicolon indicates that the second part of the sentence is elaborating on the first part. The correct answer must mean “a job that doesn't require any actual work,” and that's the meaning of (E) sinecure. Even if you didn't know what this word means, you should have been able to eliminate at least some of the wrong answer choices, since their meanings are far from “job that doesn't require work.”
