I would go with C on this

I vote for b.

I agree with b.
"deep thinking" is an appositive to "deep cognition. Appositives need to be set off by commas -- which means two commas, not one!

B is correct. The comma rule says to set an appositive off with a comma. Deep thinking is indeed in apposition.
