This sentence tests subject verb error.
In the original sentence,
Thomas Hobbes is singular and claim is plural
In his discussion of natural rights, must be followed by Thomas Hobbes(the subject) and not the English philosopher
Also, the fundamental human rights are plural and must be followed by a plural verb(include)

Option B corrects all these errors.

Please find below the mistakes in the other answer options
A) the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes claim that the fundamental rights of a human being includes
B) Thomas Hobbes, the English philosopher, claims that the fundamental human rights include
C) the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes claim all human beings are entitled to fundamental rights such a
D) the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes claims that the fundamental rights of a human being are bound to include
E) claimed to be the fundamental rights of a human being, the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes includes
