On this one I answered a) using a comma to separate each description.
was that correct?

  • English -

    I would go with C on this

  • English -

    I vote for b.

  • English -

    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.
